BTW, the logo usually shows to the left of the search box on the Personalized Home page, so your arrow's pointing to the wrong place... ;-)

Tony, they might be updating the Customize the Google Logo gadget ?
(google.com/ig/directory?url=go ...)

They might be but I don't have that installed, so I don't know why that would make any difference...

I think this is a new feature: more space for the **** gadgets. BTW, what kind of personalized homepage is this? You can't change the colors, fonts, layout, background (at least not in an easy way).

Strange. There absolutely should be a logo, even very very small.

maybe Google is testing/updating something.. :/

Maybe they are copying NetVibes which doesn´t have a logo either.

I think it's much better without a logo.

lol.. youre happy Alex ?
this means Google has removed it on purpose
and the question is, why?

Better? Why? Every service should have a logo. It´s question of identification, image etc. If you argued that now you have more space for other things – yes but you could do that with everything – webmail, classic search etc. Logo is useless.

I just created a module that will bring back the Google logo – and you can edit the module options so that it shows any other logo, too:
google.com/ig/add?moduleurl=bl ...

Without Google's logo page doesn't look good.

But now this is showing in google.co.in/ig?hl=en but not on google.com/ig
