An Easter Egg in Google SearchPosted: November 4, 2011
An easter egg has been found in Google search . It was about time that google did something interesting with google search , which even after the recent redesign wasn’t very interesting, But still the minimal look is what we all love about google search .
What is an easter egg anyway , well Wikipedia defines it as
A virtual Easter egg is an intentional hidden message, in-joke or feature in a work such as a computer program, web page, video game, movie, book or crossword.
What it means is that easter egg is just a simple trivial feature that in placed by the creators of the software product to lighten things up .

These effects seem to be working in the recent versions of all major browsers .
I have made a video of all the effects take a look
