Google Feature – Easter Egg
On November 3, 2011, the Google search engine enabled an Easter egg for the search query “do a barrel roll” that would rotate the entire screen 360 degrees.
Type the phrase “do a barrel roll” into your favorite search engine Google’s search bar and the results page will itself do “a barrel roll” before presenting you with the results.
The purpose of the latest Google Easter eggs is mainly to entertain its users, while showcasing the power of CSS3, a presentation feature of modern browsers. The ‘do a barrel roll’ query, which causes the search page to spin, will remain in place for a while, so check it out.
The barrel roll fun may not work in older browsers, as it is based on HTML5. It appears to work best using Firefox and Chrome.
Do a Barrel Roll – Google Easter Egg

Geoff and Fragger show you how to do a barrel roll in Google, of all places.
The latest Easter egg to appear on Google is apparently a reference to Star Fox 64, the 1997 Nintendo game, in which the character Peppy Hare orders you to Do a barrel roll! while approaching 4 stationary turrets firing lasers. You can also get it to perform if you search “Z or R twice” – the command buttons that effect the manoeuvre in the N64 game. Peppy’s phrase from Star Fox 64, Do a barrel roll!, has become a popular internet phenomenon.
