We were all there when Thanos snapped his fingers and wiped away half the universe in Avengers: Infinity War (well, a lot of us were anyway). If for some reason you want to relive that one more time before Avengers: Endgame, just go to your friendly neighborhood search engine.
On Wednesday, some internet users noticed that Google had hidden another Easter egg in its search results. If you type in Thanos you get the typical search results — his Wikipedia page, links to a few recent news stories, and more — but you might also get an animated Infinity Gauntlet, which appears in the information box on the right.
If you click on that, something happens to your search results.
Here's Mobile Nations' own Russell Holly showing us what happens.
So just like the Infinity Gauntlet, Google's version manages to cut your search results in half, dusting them away, and leaving you with traces of where an appropriate result should be. Not only are results visually removed, but if you check the result count, that's also cut in half.
Luckily, it's not permanent. Just click the Gauntlet again and all your results will go back to normal (not sure if that's a spoiler for Endgame or not).
I personally wasn't able to replicate the Easter egg on mobile or desktop. Another person I spoke with said they had it at one point, but now it's gone. Maybe the Easter egg was snapped out of existence? Maybe only 50% of the population get it and the other half are... I don't want to think about it.
Anyway, try it out and see what happens. Avengers: Endgame is released everywhere Friday, April 26. If you haven't bought your tickets yet, now's a great time.
