Easter eggs - what is it? Translating literally, it means "Easter eggs" - it's about the surprises left behind, hidden by programmers in their productions, constituting all kinds of references. Most often they have a humorous accent :) There are plenty of them in computer games, but I will try to show the most popular ones hidden on websites known to everyone or in browsers.


Google Terminal

A sentimental journey back to when we used terminals:

Zerg Rush

Here is a reference from Google programmers to the cult game Starcraft! Zerg rush is a tactic of attacking the enemy very early (leading the Zerg race): having only four drones, we build a building called "Spawning pool" and attack the rival's base with zerglings. This is of course all-in, because if we fail, we have no economy at all and we lose. In the browser, we will fight with the letters "O", which eat our search results :) Attack them by clicking on them - see how many letters you can kill! In addition, the program measures APM (actions per minute - i.e. how many times per minute you take action). Korean players average ~ 400 APM in Starcraft, and the record result is ~ 800 :) When we lose, the letters form the inscription GG (good game, in online games it means giving up and thanking for the game). To see this effect, just type "zerg rush" into Google.

Barrel Roll

The search results will perform a "barrel" for us after entering the following phrase.


The search results will tilt when you enter the word: askew.

The loneliest number in the world

Google replies that the loneliest person in the world is one.

Number 42

The number 42, according to Google, is the answer to "The Great Question about Life, the Universe and everything else" (an obvious reference to Douglas Adams books).

Google Gravity

Gravitational overload in search results? Take a look - also try to "catch" individual elements:

Firefox message from Robots

Type in the address bar of Mozilla Firefox the following address: about:robots we will see a message from robots, greeting us with the words "Klaatu barada nizo" (an allegory for the film "The Day the Earth Stood Still" from 1951):
