All the Google Doodles

Over the years, Google has released several of its “doodles”—a temporary re-design of the Google logo made as a tribute to a historical event or the birthday of someone who has changed the world for the better. Through the link below, you’ll find all of the Google Doodles, not only the American versions.

Fun Searches

Type “french military victories” into the search field and click “I’m feeling lucky

Type “Do a Barrel Roll” into Google.

Google Tilt or Askew

Typing the word “tilt” or “askew” on Google (specifically if you’re using the Chrome or Safari browser) commands the search engine to “tilt” the whole screen slightly to the right.

 Zerg Rush

A game which encourages players to defend the search results against the miniature Google logos which attacks them.

What started as an Easter egg became so well-loved that Google eventually turned it into a regular feature of Google Earth.

Download Google Earth and go to Tools > Enter Flight Simulator, and you’re off to make a round-the-world tour.
