Google Search Just Got Even Cooler with These Hacks (19 pics)

And while you’re there, you may as well try Googling “Zerg Rush”:
You can actually play this game: Click as fast as you can on the O’s as they attack your screen to save your search results from the Zerg.
Or you can go back to a happier time:
Just type “Google in 1998” in the search bar and you can search Google as if you were back in the glorious ’90s.
Use Google as a timer:
Just type “Set timer 30 minutes” (or however long you want) in quotes, and the countdown begins!

Google will calculate your tip for you:
Type “tip calculator,” and a tip calculator will magically appear and do your bidding.

Search for special days:
Type in an important upcoming day and Google will automatically provide you with the date it’s occurring on and a brief description of what it’s all about. Saint Swithin’s Day is coming up, you guys!

You can also use the same method to get movie release dates…
A full schedule for your favorite shows…
Songs by your favorite bands…

And a list of books by your favorite authors:
You can also get quick flight schedules:
The exact time of the sunrise in your city:
Info on a company’s founders:

You can tell Google to do a barrel roll:
Or tilt, ever so slightly, to the right:
Searching for “recursion” will get you into a dangerous infinite loop:
And searching “Anagram” will get you some nifty anagrams you can use to impress all your friends:


A “Festivus” search brings up a beautiful aluminum Festivus pole:
“Binary” and “hexadecimal” take you directly into the land of the nerds:
Google will also show you the etymology of certain words…
A calorie comparison of your favorite foods…
