10 Glorious Easter Eggs on the Internet

 

Last month, Reddit user VampireElf started an amazing thread asking users to submit their favourite little known Easter Eggs on websites around the globe. Some 4406 comments later, and a treasure trove of Internet nuggets were left for others to discover.

Below you will find a list of 10 glorious easter eggs that pleased us to no end. If there are any glaring omissions please let us know in the comments as we will certainly be doing a follow-up post!

For the uninitiated, an Easter Egg is:

A virtual Easter egg is an intentional hidden message, in-joke, or feature in a work such as a computer program, web page, video game, movie, book, or crossword. The term was coined — according to Warren Robinett — by Atari after they were pointed to the secret message left by Robinett in the game Adventure. It draws a parallel with the custom of the Easter egg hunt observed in many Western nations as well as the last Russian imperial family’s tradition of giving elaborately jeweled egg-shaped creations by Carl Fabergé which contained hidden surprises.
