Google introduces ‘let it snow’ Easter egg

Google is known for marking big events by altering their homepage with interactive elements for users. They honor birthdays and anniversaries of famous people and events on a regular basis. Now Google takes on the holidays.

Warning: The Google snow effect will cause your screen to frost.

Head to Google. In the search bar, type “let it snow.” Hit enter and you will start to see virtual snowflakes cascade down your computer screen. Wait several seconds and the search results will frost over, allowing you to write over it with your mouse, just like you would use your finger to draw on a fogged up window or mirror.

Need to get back to work? Just click defrost next to the search bar and you are back in business.

What do you think of Google’s latest Easter egg?

You might have IE9 but are working in a different version depending on your settings. My IE9 browser at work defaults to IE8 mode. Go to the little setting sprocket icon in the top right of your browser window. Click on it and then click on the “F12 developer tools” and a new window will open. In that windows’s toolbar you’ll see “Browser Mode:” If it’s not IE9 you can click on it and select IE9 or IE9 compatability mode and “let it snow” should work. It did for me.

I’m still partial to what happens when you search “do a barrel roll”

I typed in “Make it Rain” and was quite surprised at what popped up.
