A little-known startup called Google first launched to change the world 15 years ago today — give or take a few days.
The exact date of Google’s launch is a little unclear, as the company has celebrated its birthday on several different dates over the years. Technically, the company registered the Google.com domain on Sept. 15, 1997 — more than 16 years ago — and filed to be incorporated on Sept. 4, 1998. Whatever the case, Google says it is officially celebrating its 15th birthday on Friday.
