Easter egg search Google offers an explosion for the fourth of July

Easter egg search Google offers an explosion for the fourth of July

The fourth of July is just around the corner, and Google has a surprise for users of its search engine who consult words related to Independence Day.

Queries of terms such as "fireworks," "fireworks near me," or "Fourth of July" will trigger a series of brightly colored fireworks on the search results page. Searches of related terms in Spanish, such as "Cuatro de Julio" or "artificial fireworks" offer the same mini-show.

This is not the first time that Google has planted an Easter egg in its search results. In April, in the run-up to the release of the movie Avengers: Endgame, a simple Google query for Thanos, the supervillain who started half of the universe in Avengers: Infinity War in 2018, would turn the search results into dust instantly.

Google has also traditionally marked the month of June as Gay and Lesbian Pride by adding a rainbow to the right side of the search bar when users search for "gay", "lesbian", "transgender" or related terms. The return of this year in those search terms generated a graphic that represents the Pride celebrations around the world.

To get more challenging results, search Google for "askew," "anagram," or "do a barrel roll." (Professional advice: have the Dramamine on hand for the last one).
