We all use Google every day to find useful information and do searches for school, work or just to satisfy our curiosity. However, Google has a lighter page that you may not know.
Google Gravity offers a little easier entertainment for a few seconds. A lot of Gravity pages have been created, many by Google itself and many others by third parties who wanted to get in on the action.
Some are more fun than others but all are worth a few seconds of your day. Here are my personal top ten best Google Gravity tricks. Take a look and see what you think.
1. Google Zero Gravity
Google Zero Gravity is one of the most basic tricks but is one of the more entertaining on this list.
Although it does the same thing every time, it doesn’t seem to get old. Visit Google Zero Gravity here to see what I mean.
Remember that the search box is not useful when the action is complete. As such, it is not the most practical in the world. However, the other links still work.
2. Google Guitar
Google Guitar is a neat trick that turns the search box into a guitar. Use the mouse or gesture to pick a string and get off.
You can experiment or look for a few well-known songs you can play. It’s a small thing and probably won’t notice you for a long time, but it’s a lot of fun to play with.

3. Google Space
Google Space is not a site you want to visit after having a few drinks.
It simulates zero weight in an interesting and quite mind-bending way. It does fun things for the perception and will upset those of you who prefer things in order.
Still, it’s a little fun to watch the screen for a minute or two. Try Google Space here.
4. Google Underwater
Google Underwater is pretty relaxing if you look at it long enough.
It simulates being underwater and releases the search box into the sea with fish swimming around it. Like the others, the search box doesn’t work here, but it’s still fun to play with.
It’s a simple but nice background to have while working. Try Google Underwater here.
5. Google Pacman
Google Pacman has been around for years but it’s still a bit fun for a few minutes.
Open the page, hit Insert Coin and play a quick game of the ’80s classic in the browser. Although old, the game is as challenging as ever and offers a basic but entertaining break from work or homework.
Try Google Pacman here.
6. Google Sphere
Google Sphere is another mind-bender that is also a little gentle entertainment for a minute or two.
The traditional Google screen of the 1990s appears and the search box remains static while all text around it rotates in a circle that simulates a sphere. This one looks old and like Pacman is from an earlier age. But despite that, it offers a small fee on a long day.
Try Google Sphere here.
7. Google Terminal
Google Terminal is one of the encoders out there.
It turns the regular Google search page into a 1980s code terminal in the MS-DOS style. It takes a few seconds to orient yourself to the layout but once you have it it is actually very easy to use. The usual search and “I feel happy” options exist, you just have to work a little harder to find them.

8. Epic Google
If you have one of those days where you feel epic, this is the Google Gravity trick for you.
Epic Google lets you do an epic search and instead of feeling happy you feel EXCESSIVE. The search engine still performs its usual functions, so it’s all for show.
Try Epic Google here.
9. Calm Google
Funny Google is for you who still laugh at toilet jokes, like me.
It’s the usual Google-style main page with another window under ‘Set another name.’ Enter a word in the box, hit ‘Enter’, and that word replaces Google above the search box. We all know what words you will put there.

10. Zerg Rush
The last Google Gravity trick worth trying is called Zerg Rush. All players who pass a certain age will probably recognize this name – it comes from the classic video game StarCraft and refers to a strategy to immediately build a large number of small, cheap units and attack one’s enemy before they have a chance to establish itself.
The Google Gravity version is a little lower than the video game’s interpretation, but it’s still in the original spirit. This is the only trick that is actively interrupting the search process, but it is so fun that we can easily forgive it!
Try Zerg Rush here.
As much as we all use Google, it might surprise you to learn that it still has some tricks up its sleeve.
Google Gravity offers a fun way to waste a few minutes when you’re bored at work or school. Try these 10 Google Gravity tricks and let us know what you think about them.
