One more Google Easter egg: I’m Feeling Lucky button

After a long time the big G has changed its I’m Feeling Lucky button. Since 1998 when Google published its first home page the button was there. Although in between  14 years Google has changed a lot in the layout, structure and color of other buttons and links, it had not changed anything in the functionality of I’m Feeling Lucky button. But now Google has changed a lot to that button in both functionally and appearance. You can view the first Google homepage present in Wikipedia.
