Took me a while to figure out the easiest way to get rid of those %!#@#$ google animated doodles. Just use the Canada google page below:

https://www.google.ca/?gws_rd=ssl

If you use firefox, palemoon, or seamonkey for your browser, simply right click the adblock icon in the corner of your screen and disable it on the sign in page if you use gmail. I really hate those idiotic googles, and don't much care for google itself either, but sometimes their search engine will give me stuff that others won't. Pretty close to google free now though.

I just clicked your link for Google Canada, and nothing was animated. I have adblock, maybe that's preventing it? My browser is Google chrome, I'm in the states, and now and again, they have those 4 bouncing balls
in mostly primary colors bouncing. It annoyed me at first, but I've gotten to where I don't even see it.
I will say, too much animation does annoy me.
What annoys me more, are news websites that load way too much video, run it without you wanting it to, and sound blasting. I have to keep the sound at zero on my pc just to avoid this crappola.

No idea what Google Doddles is but I said no to Google searches years ago.
It is the worst if you are paranoid, or even privacy focused.

See if duckduckgo.com works for you too but be careful the letter d is right next to letter f!

Many people enjoy the Google Doodles and look forward to seeing the new ones. The world is full of people who like things other people don't like.

Be aware the results on that page may be optimized for people in Canada. Don't be surprised if you see doodles for Canadians.

LOL, Right?!?! What's the big deal??
If that slows your computer down...it's time for a new computer.
It's certainly not a privacy risk so I have ZERO clue why Dude111 cares.
