Google hidden tricks – fun to know
Google had recently come up with the "let it snow" trick during the Christmas and has always been famous for its "ester tricks" but did you know that there were a lot more such secrets which are still not known to the public in general. I call them secrets, although they are no secrets. Google just doesn't make it clear, it wants the public to have some fun.
Have you ever wondered if there were secrets hidden in Google. World's largest search engine has to have some surprises. There have to be a lot of experimental pranks, after all you don't become so famous without doing certain fun things!
Here's a collection of all cool hidden Google tricks I have come across till date
FIRST Turn off 'google instant search' : To do this click on settings on the top right of the google homepage and there you will see the option to turn off Google Instant predictions. Do it, save the settings and return back to the homepage . This step is important for some tricks to work. If you have slow internet connection or are using a dialup connection, then you don't need to worry. The instant prediction won't be active.
