There's a special Google easter egg that shows up when you watch too much porn

Incognito mode on Google Chrome is for porn. We all know that incognito mode is for porn. TECHNICALLY you could use it to buy a present that you don’t want to come up in your browser history. TECHNICALLY you could use it if you’re toggling between multiple Google accounts. TECHNICALLY you could use it for lots of things. But, realistically: it’s for porn. It is for porn.

Anyway, bad news for anyone who looks at porn i.e. literally everyone reading this story: incognito mode is judging you.

On normal, non-porny Google Chrome, opening 100 tabs replaces the tab counter in the corner of the app with a lil smiley face. Fine, whatever. BUT: if you open 100 tabs on incognito, the smiley is a winky face. A tiny, judgemental winky face. 

Wink

Judging you

It’s one of many easter eggs hidden in Google products, the best of which is obviously the dinosaur-jumping-over-obstacles game you get when you haven’t got an internet connection.

There are also a bunch of hidden features when you Google specific phrases: “do a barrel roll” makes the page do a barrel roll, obviously; “askew” makes the page slightly wonky; “zerg rush” makes the ‘o’s from the logo attack and destroy search results.

Anyway, the incognito easter egg seems fair enough to us tbh: 100 tabs worth of porn is probably… too much porn? Two or three: fine. 50: bit weird. 100: are you OK? Seriously: are you OK?

The wink-face feature is only available on Android so if you’re an iPhone user looking at loads of porn you’re safe from judgement for now. Except from us. We’re judging you.
