"Hack" the Google homepage

Thanks to the amazing Amos, you can now replace the Google logo with our own jammed version (courtesy of Free Range).

Here's the step-by-step:

1) Make sure you have the latest Firefox web browser

2) Install the Grease Monkey extension (make sure to restart Firefox after you do!)

3) Install the "Evil Google Logo" greasemonkey script (Go to the page; click on "Install this Script"; Third, click the "Tools" menu, and Install User Script in your Firefox menu. Then just click OK and it's all done. Easy!) [The script has been updated with LouCypher's to work on all Google local domains.]

4) Go to google.com, google.ca, or google.co.uk and laugh! show all your friends! laugh! (repeat)

Right now the script doesn't work with google.cn, but its pretty obvious that's evil. And don't worry, you aren't actually doing anything to the google servers - its just replacing it on your computer.

[UPDATE]: LouCypher has modified Amo's script so that it now works for all local Google pages. Thanks Lou and thanks again Amos!!!

    I have modified the script. It should work on all local Google now. Please check http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/3070.

    Thanks Lou!

    Any idea if it works on google.cn? I'll have to check myself...

    I can't access google.cn :(

    Thanks, works great for me! It doesn't replace the logo on www.google.cn, but *does* put in the "I'm Feeling Repressed" button. It's almost funnier that way, because the page looks like the real deal until you read that button!

    Fight the good fight!

    If google.cn doesn't work because of redirect, it's possible to try address www.google.cn/webhp?hl=zh-CN instead of .cn.

    Hey Brad and anonymous, thanks the info. The script now works on google.cn >:D

    OK, i.e. webhp?hl= is a 'forced language parameter'.
    Oops, submission button switched my previous comment to anon ;-)
