(Newser) – Oh, those wacky billionaires at Google. On the heels of the "do a barrel roll" trick, which caused your whole browser to do a 360-degree spin, the search king has released a more seasonal Easter egg: snow. Type the three magic words "let it snow" into Google, and watch as white flakes drift down, frosting up your screen. The Huffington Post notes there's a second trick: You can use your cursor to etch your name (or whichever tag you choose) into the frost. Clear your screen by clicking "defrost," which ultimately pops up in place of the "search" button.
