Update: Here’s one more. This one is extra special, you can upload it to your own servers.

Like many a web geek, I’m a huge fan of minimalism…in life, work and design. Occasionally I enjoy perusing Minimalist Sites, a site devoted to the minimalist lifestyle. In celebration of its minimalist mindset, the site has created two alternatives to Google’s homepage, so minimalist in fact, you may look at Google’s current release in disapproval.

One downside: Because it’s hosted on MinimalSites, you will notice that it takes a second or two longer to load the page that it would do were it hosted by Google. That being the case, I lie in hope that Google is reading and as keen to implement this as we would be.

These are the two we’ve uncovered. Know of any others? Leave them in the comments.
