3.) Google Thanos Snap

Introduced in April 2019 to coincide with the premiere of the Marvel film Avengers: Endgame, the Google Thanos Easter egg let users witness the aftermath of Thanos’ universe-altering snap. This hidden feature, which mirrored the movie’s event where half of all life was eradicated, was eventually taken down by Google in mid-2020. However, enthusiasts can still experience it through this link: https://elgoog.im/thanos/

Initiate the Easter egg by selecting the Infinity Gauntlet symbol located in the info panel to your right. Upon doing so, half of the displayed search outcomes will fade away, mimicking turning to dust, all while sound effects play in the background. The number of search results will also decrease, reflecting the impact of Thanos’ snap.

Yet, by clicking the gauntlet once more, the search results revert to their initial appearance, mirroring the Avengers’ efforts to undo Thanos’ actions.
