Easter Eggs are hidden features or tricks that are a part of a system. Our search engine giant Google has a plethora of these hidden eggs. Let us have a look at some of these cool easter eggs.
Google in 1998
When you type ‘Google in 1998’, it gives you a view of how Google would look in 1998.

This will make the tab window do a barrel roll. The window will make a 360 degree rotation before displaying the search results. The same result can be achieved by typing ‘Z or R twice’.

This results in google suggesting you ‘I am in great pain please help me’. This is a reference to the TV show ‘Rick and Morty’.
Searching for ‘Zerg Rush’ on Google will make an army of Google’s O character to eat up the search results. You can defeat them by clicking on those Os. If you don’t do that before they eat the entire page, you will lose and the Os will form 2 G, meaning Good Game.
