Google is for getting information. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun with it. Here are 4 cool Google tricks.
- Atari Breakout. Want to play the legendary game? No problem. Type these words into the Google search bar and open the Images tab. After a moment the Atari Breakout game will appear on your screen.
- Zerg rush. Type these words into the search bar and try to defend the results from being destroyed by yellow and red o‘s.
- Do a barrel roll. Search for this term and watch the results spin around before stopping in their usual position as if nothing happened.
- Did you mean recursion? Type the word recursion into the search bar. Google will ask you whether you meant recursion. If you click the link it will ask again. After all, the word means repeating the same thing over and over again.
Bonus – a Chrome trick
When you’re offline, try pressing the space key on the Unable to connect to the Internet screen. You will see the sad dinosaur bounce and start running. Your
quest is to jump over the cactuses without touching them. After some time birds will start appearing – jump over or duck under them, depending on their position. Use the space or arrow up key to jump and the arrow down key to duck.
