Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. As a first step to fulfilling that mission, Google’s founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin developed a new approach to online search that took root in a Stanford University dorm room and quickly spread to information seekers around the globe. Google is now widely recognized as the world’s largest search engine -- an easy-to-use free service that usually returns relevant results in a fraction of a second.
