The Best Easter Eggs OnThe Web

Don’t worry, it’s not malware or applications that can secretly get your personal information. These easter eggs are a bit of fun, some of them are hidden in code just to say ‘hi’ to the user who was bored enough to read through many lines of code. Some companies sneak job ads into their HTML:

Other sites might have unicorns, guns, or obscure, cryptic messages. Even if you’re not particularly web-savvy, it’s not hard to crack open your favorite site’s source code and comb through it for a bit. If you’re also a diehard Chrome user, then all you need to do is type “view-source:” before a website’s URL. You can also access these codes in any browser by right-clicking on a webpage and hitting “view source.”
