There was a time when the word Google wasn't in our language. In the late 90s and early 2000s, people chose their favourite search engine from names like Excite!, Lycos, Magellan and Ask Jeeves. Remember using any of those? Then, along came Google. At first it wasn't very well known. Now, absolutely everyone has heard of it.
