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.

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.
