Google silently updates its logo

Yes, you read it right. Google had made some changes to its logo earlier this week. However, the change was so minor, it was hardly noticeable to anyone (except for the kerning nerds). The change was first spotted by members of Reddit.

Google has shifted the letters 'g' and 'l' little as part of the change. While the 'g' has moved one pixel right, the 'l' has been shifted one pixel down.

Google's logo has seen several changes over the years. Of late, the focus has been making it look neat. The latest, however, comes down to kerning (space between characters in text). Google's own records show the latest logo is 11th version.
