Google is the most powerful search engine in the world, it earns billions of dollars per year, it has revolutionised the web and yet still astonishes everybody. We are not talking about a new technology that will help to solve all the global problems, but their latest “ innovation “ is a great little digital easter egg . Yes folks, while the Western society is facing one of the deepest recession of the history, the Google staff has spent their hours developing this new feature that at least will help everyone to cheer up for a while!
Simply head over to the Google search homepage now and search for “do a barrel roll”...you'll be impressed by what you see. It's also a great showcase of what you can achieve with HTML5 technology – all of which can be read by the search engines too. Bye bye Flash!
