Otherwise from just providing a bunch of useful links, developers of Google have built into the search engine many awesome quirks such as games and tricks. Here are 10 of the coolest:
By just typing in “Google Gravity” in the search field and then clicking “Im feeling lucky” the Google page comes crashing down from the moment you move your mouse. You may need to disable Google’s instant predictions in your search settings in order to get the “Im feeling lucky” option.
2. Barrel Roll
This Google Pacman game was built to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Pacman in 2010, but became so popular that it was given a permanent home.
4. Zerg Rush
This one comes from a strategy video game called StarCraft that involves preventing “o’s”, from the Google logo, from touching and destroying your search results by clicking on them. You can also share your score on Google+.
You are probably wondering “what does the number 42 have to do with anything?”, but according to Google’s calculator when you search “the answer to life the universe and everything” the answer is.. “42”. If you’ve read the novel “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy“, you’ll get this one.
Having a hard time solving a math problem? Google also has a calculator that can solve any math problem by just searching the equation.
7. Exchange Rate Calculator
Not only does Google calculate math equations, it can do currency conversions by typing in the name of your original currency, the word “to”, then the currency you want to convert to. For example, “US dollar to British pound”.
Google can provide the definition for any word if you type in the word “define”, then the word you are seeking the definition for. For example, you want to know the meaning of the word “trick”, you will type “define trick” into the search field.
When you click “Im feeling lucky” with the search field empty, a catalogue of Google doodles made since 1998 will appear.
