The definition of an Easter Egg is “an unexpected feature which is an intentional inside joke or hidden message in a piece of computer software, video game, movie, and yes, even websites.”

Type in “Zerg Rush” to Google and watch what happens to your page. Google isn’t the only website that has some hidden “Easter eggs”. Yahoo, YouTube and even Kickstarter have Easter Eggs hidden. Go to http://www.youtube.com and type in the words “beam me up Scotty” and watch what happens.
The term “Easter Egg” was coined by Warren Robinett, an Atari game designer, who was discovered putting in a hidden message on a game he designed called “Adventure” in 1979. The hidden item was his own name. Robinett was hoping to gain recognition for his work since at that time, Atari kept these names secret.
