On March 15, 2005, Google software engineer Chikai Ohazama published Google X on the company's blog. Ohazama wrote: "I hope all of you enjoy it - especially Mac users, who I'm sure will appreciate its lineage."

Google X was a variant of Google's well-known search interface but with images instead of text links for the different choices (image search, Froogle, Google labs, and so on). A javascript rollover effect enlarged the images when the mouse passed over them, an effect not unlike the dock in Apple's OS X.

When Google X was launched, this little poem could be found at the bottom of the page: "Roses are red. Violets are blue. OS X rocks. Homage to you."

Although the project was pulled hours after it was launched, you can still see how it looked.
