The ‘do a barrel roll‘ and ‘z or r twice‘ queries on Google make your computer screens to do a 360-degree turn. The easter egg is hot on web right now and this is how Google got free media attention and makes other competitors more jealous of it. The captivating function works in Google Chrome and Firefox browsers, but not in Internet Explorer.
It is also working on iPhone devices, but not on Android and Blackberry ones.
Google told ABC News: “Today’s fun query, ‘do a barrel roll,’ was created by a Google software engineer with the primary goal of entertaining users – while showcasing the power of CSS3, a presentation feature of modern browsers.”
