How Does Google Gravity Work?
How to Make Web Searches More Effective
Google is known for creating themes for its search engine homepage for different holidays and other days of importance. Google Gravity is an alternative homepage that’s always available and lets you play with the icons on the page. While Google Gravity still functions as an actual search engine, your search results aren’t sorted in the traditional way.
There’s no icon on the Google homepage that affords access to Google Gravity. Getting to the program is still easy, however. Navigate to google.com or the Google search bar at the top of your Internet browser, and enter the search phrase “Google Gravity.” Click on the first search result that appears — “Google Gravity-Mr.Doob.” Google Gravity opens in the same browser window tab.
When you open Google Gravity, the page appears just like the regular Google homepage for a few seconds. Then, every icon and word on the screen automatically drops to the bottom of the page, simulating the effects of gravity. The icons fall directly down, though some pieces land upside down or on their sides.
Once the icons and links fall to the bottom of your screen, you can use your mouse to play with them and move them around. Click on something and drag it upward; as long as you hold the mouse button, the piece dangles from the cursor. After you release the button from an icon, it drops back down to the bottom of the page, below where you held it. You can use your mouse to move icons around on the page, throw them around or flip them up just for fun.
Google Gravity functions just like regular Google in terms of searching the Internet. Type search terms in the search box and hit “Enter” to execute a search. Your search results also fall down the page; you won’t be able to tell which result is the top result, but clicking a link opens it in a new browser window or tab. Click on a part of the search result that isn’t a hyperlink and use your mouse to move the results around on the page.
