In a countdown to its unveiling, Yahoo! is changing its logo daily through September 5.
The logo makeover is in honor of the tech company's shifts and changes which include the hiring of chief executive Marissa Mayer.
The 30 days of change evolution also comes during a time when Yahoo beat Google in U.S. Web traffic in July — the first time Yahoo has claimed the No. 1 spot since May 2011, according to market researcher ComScore.
According to the Washington Post, Yahoo edged Google with 196.6 million unique monthly visitors, to 192.3 million — breaking Google's two-year, top-spot position.
Yahoo! was founded by Jerry Yang and David Filo in January 1994 and was incorporated on March 1, 1995.

Yahoo! offers a multi-lingual interface and is available in over 20 languages.
As of January 2010, Yahoo! held the world's largest market share in online display advertising, but tech giant Facebook took that No. 1 spot in 2011.
