Now don't get us wrong, Google is still content to maintain its trademark rabbit-in-a-snowstorm as the default background. But should users be in the mood for something a little more, shall we say, Bingy, the company is allowing people to upload their own photo as the Google homepage.

Users can pull photos from their computer, from a Picasa Web Album, or from Picasa's Public Gallery. Once activated, users will see a prompt in the lower left-hand corner of the search start page. The feature is still be rolled out.
