Google gets Bing-style skins

If you're a fan of Bing's rich backdrop images, but you prefer your search results to be Google's, then here's one for you. A site has launched which allows you to skin Google with images in the same way as Microsoft's search engine.

The site is called Skinggle, and features a search box and backdrop with hotspots on the image that link through to search results for related topics. Anyone can create a skin from a large enough image, rate existing skins created by others and select which ones to use.

To create and rate skins, you'll need to log into the site, or connect it up with your Facebook account. We quite like Dive Into and Einstein - what are some of your favourites? Let us know in the comments.

Thanks to Alan for the tip.
