Easter eggs and some obscure program features.

Пасхальные яйца и некоторые малоизвестные функции программ

“Easter egg” (English Easter Egg, slang easter eggs) is a kind of secret left in the game, film or software by the creators. The difference between an Easter egg in a game and a regular game secret is that its content, as a rule, does not fit into the general concept, looks in context improbable, ridiculous, and often is an external link. Easter eggs play the role of original jokes for attentive players or spectators.

Most often, in order to “get” an Easter egg, a complex and / or non-standard set of actions should be performed, which makes it unlikely or virtually eliminates accidental detection.

All Easter eggs and features in this section are verified.

Easter eggs are green , blue are little-known standard functions, red are glitches and developer errors.
