Google Fun Hacks: Fun while searching in Google

Various Google services also hide Easter eggs meant to be amusing entertainment.
  • Searching for "anagram" shows "Did you mean: nag a ram".
  • Searching for "do a barrel roll" or "Z or R twice" will rotate the results page a full 360 degrees. This is a reference to the Nintendo video game Star Fox 64.
  • Searching for "recursion" shows "Did you mean: "recursion", which allows you to recursively run searches for recursion.
  • Searching for "Jason Isaacs" shows "Hello to Jason Isaacs", a reference to Kermode and Mayo's Film Reviews which greets Jason Isaacs with a 'hello' every week
  • Searching world cup 2014 will show a notification of "FIFA World Cup begins Thursday, June 12, 2014, and ends Sunday, July 13, 2014".
  • Searching for "tilt" or "askew" using a Webkit based browser (such as Google Chrome, Safari, or Android/iOS built-in browsers) or a recent version of Firefox (7+), makes the page 'lean' to the right a bit.
  • Around December 2011 and January 2012, Searching for "let it snow" simulates snowfall and frost on the search results. After a while, the search screen fogs up and the blue search button changes to Defrost, enabling the user to defrost the page clicking and rubbing it like a window. Interaction with the actual search screen is disabled until the Defrost button is pressed (even if the entire screen is manually defrosted). Search screen will cease to fog up once the Defrost button is pressed.
