The allegation is based on the presence of 9 identical bugs in Orkut that also existed in In Circles.
On August 25, 2007, Orkut announced a redesign and the new UI contained round corners and soft colors, including small logotype at upper left corner.
The new version used Google Web Toolkit (GWT), thus making extensive use of AJAX in the user interface.
However, users of the new version could still switch back to the old one.
By August 30, 2007, most users on Orkut could see changes on their profile pages as per the new redesign.
On August 31, 2007, Orkut announced its new features including improvements to the way you view your friends, 9 rather than 8 of your friends displayed on your homepage and profile page and basic links to your friends' content right under their profile picture as you browse through their different pages.
The service was designed to help users meet new and old friends and maintain existing relationships.
Unlike Facebook, where one can only view profile details of people in their network, Orkut initially allowed anyone to visit everyone's profile, unless a potential visitor was on a person's "Ignore List" (this feature was eventually changed so that users could choose between showing their profile to all networks or specified ones).
Each member was also able to customize their profile preferences and restrict information that appears on their profile from their friends and/or others.
The website was named after its creator, Google employee Orkut Büyükkökten.
Orkut was one of the most visited websites in India and Brazil in 2008.
