…Mozilla loves robots?

Firefox Robot

If you’ve already made the jump to Firefox 3, Beta 5, then go to your address bar and type about:robots for an Easter Egg page with a robot flavor.

(And if you haven’t made the jump, then I recommend you do so, because I love the new features, and I haven’t had a lot of trouble with it so far. If you’re still worried though, check out Lifehacker’s The Complete Field Guide to Testing Firefox 3.)

…You can play with a site’s images?

Here’s a fun web trick to try, and it works with any page as long as the page contains images (try a Google Images search results page). Just copy the following Java code into the address bar of your browser, and hit enter:

    javascript:R=0; x1=.1; y1=.05; x2=.25; y2=.24; x3=1.6; y3=.24; x4=300; y4=200; x5=300; y5=200; DI=document.getElementsByTagName(“img”); DIL=DI.length; function A(){for(i=0; i-DIL; i++){DIS=DI[ i ].style; DIS.position=’absolute’; DIS.left=(Math.sin(R*x1+i*x2+x3)*x4+x5)+”px”; DIS.top=(Math.cos(R*y1+i*y2+y3)*y4+y5)+”px”}R++}setInterval(‘A()’,5); void(0);

When you’re done, just hit reload and you’re back to normal. Plus, it’s a fun game to play on those with slightly less computer savvy-ness than you.
