Google Chrome Easter Egg, Make it Crash For Fun
By on September 4th, 2008

Chrome overload already? Sorry for that, but we could not resist from posting this, Google Chrome has a hidden Easter egg which will automatically make the browser crash.

To crash Google Chrome on purpose, simply paste about:% into the address bar. Once you do that Google Chrome will automatically crash and show you a option to restart.

Thanks for the tip hostintruder.

    How do you know that’s an easter egg? Couldn’t that just be a bug? Hmm. I don’t see the amusement in it.

    yes keith, i don’t think it is an easter egg…infact google chrome crashes easily due to many reasons…i have found atleast five different ways to crash it :)

  • Keith Dsouza

    @Scottie @Rajesh Yes it could be a bug too, we cannot be entirely sure till Google raises it as a bug

  • lazyandroid

    I don’t see how this could be an easteregg, they are supposed to be meaningless but funny. This is just meaningless.

    The strange thing tough is that it crashed as soon as you type/copypaste it. You don’t even get to press enter.

    Google Chrome does have an easter egg that I know about.

    Type “about:internets” into the address bar.

    I don't think it works anymore.

    It wasn't a bug, they used it to test if the crash sequence was working. They moved it, though, to another about: thing that I forgot.

    That’s not working on my Chrome, even the about:internets easter eggs. When I enter that “weird” url, my chrome always change it to chrome://internets/. I use Chrome 20.0.1132.57

    Sorry for my bad English
