Easter eggs everywhere
Easter is coming, and our Oslo office is now well prepared with decorative eggs hanging everywhere. The eggs here are easy to find, so we have attracted the visits of some special guests. 😉
Browser Easter eggs: Have you seen them?
But, there are also some other eggs coming to Opera — browser Easter eggs, tiny hidden jokes that our developers like to sneak into the browser. We’ve done this in the past and now there are some completely new ones, so the fun starts again.
Some of the most common browser Easter eggs are website shortcuts. Imagine, for instance, that by typing I> in the combined address and search field, you will be redirected to YouTube. Or, by typing [o], you will be taken to Instagram. Not everyone knows about Easter eggs, and finding them takes some hunting, which is how they got the name.
Let the fun begin: Send us your Easter Egg ideas
We would like to add some funny website shortcuts to Opera for computers this year. And, we’d love your help to do this. If you have any ideas for funny website shortcuts, share them via firstname.lastname@example.org. We might add some of the best proposals into future versions of Opera. If we use your Easter egg in our browser, you will receive a small thank-you gift.
Easter is approaching quickly, so we need you to get busy and brainstorm some ideas. Send us your proposal, including a well-known website and a shortcut suggestion, by April 10th. And, stay tuned, because the Easter eggs are on their way.
