iGoogle with beach theme.

With iGoogle, users can select unique themes for one's Google homepage. Some of the themes are animated depending on weather conditions, the time in your area (It asks you for your location upon selecting a theme), and so on. There are also Easter eggs for the themes, for example, in the Sweet Dreams theme, at 3:14 am, a Pi sign made of stars will appear. In the Beach theme, at 3:14 am, the Loch Ness Monster appears. These last for only one minute. The sky darkens/lightens throughout the day, depending on the time.
