Chrome for Android beta Easter eggs revealed (video)

New, 30 comments

Today some Android users found a couple of easter eggs. If you try to open more than 99 tabs, the counter will simply show you a smiley face emoticon, since there's no space to fit three digits. Also, if you scroll to the bottom of the tab list five times the entire stack will flip to show you the Chrome logo.

We noted Chrome for Android beta's new tabs and speedier rendering earlier this week, but it looks like we may have missed a feature or two. Some Android users have found a couple Easter eggs — we've seen Android 4.0 tricks before, so it's no surprise that Google dropped a few into its newest mobile browser. As you can see in photo above, if you try to open more than 99 tabs, the counter will simply show you a smiley face emoticon since there's no space to fit three digits. The second Easter egg is a bit more flashy: scroll to the bottom your tab list five times and the entire stack of tabs will flip around, showing you the Chrome logo. Sure, these Easter eggs aren't going to enhance your browsing experience quite like the ability to share tabs between your phone and your desktop, but it's all in good fun, right?
