O.P. RE: Googles "fade-in" effect
Just word of mouth, but i think the fade in effect was to preserve a little virtual memory. Now I have no idea if this is even remotely true, nor can I be bothered researching into it. But yea.

Also, there are people in this world who like things that are there just for "eye-candy" and provide no real other use. Remember google is the most used search engine, so for people who arent really that tech savvy or whatever, they will go to google.com and type their queries in there instead of say using the search bar. And for them, this fade in effect might be interesting or cool. Not everyone is as uber-awesome techy like you cookie :P

RE: Googles "fade-in" effect
but to get those links back it would just require 1 click on the white... i feel it is just strange to have to blank and then when you move your mouse it comes back... it should be a more controlled environment than just mouse movement

but hey, everyone likes different things =p

tbh I agree with Nana, about the clicky thing. then again though I occasionally see the google mainpage, and sometimes just to check the google doodle, I normally just use firefox's address bar or google qsb

Not everyone.
For example, if I want to go to Google News, just type news.google.com instead, works for all Google products.
