Yesterday we warned you about the Google X-Rays logo. So now it is here and you see it on Google.com, unless you are already tomorrow, like Australia.

Here is a picture of the original Google X-Rays logo:

The logo is actually made up of eight images to create an animated GIF. It provides the glow effect to the live logo, which you should see above.

Here is a break down of the eight logos:

There is one complaint in the Google Web Search Help forum that the logo is slowing his computer down. I am not sure if animated GIFs can slow down computers. But I wouldn't be surprised if the logo is distracting enough to waste people's time.
