Would u guys ever consider adding games to the main screen of the search engine? It sounds weird but it could be entertaining.

It is definitely something we have considered. I'm not sure how involved the games would be, but I had considered putting together a little game of Snake or similar via JS. I don't expect we'd be loading any 3D HTML5 games, but it's totally possible.

If this is something the community would really like to see we can consider games that might require more assets, but for now I think simple games are totally acceptable.

Thanks, I thought it would be cool. That time that firefox put a game in celebration of there game bundle you could buy. It was basic and fun to play. Please let me know though if you guys ever consider doing this.

That not an instant answer idea. Since you want it on main page, instead of logo (for example).

@TV good point, I didn't notice that the "main page" was specified -- with regards to that, I doubt we're going to do that anytime soon, it would feel a little too much like a copy of Google in my opinion.

However, if someone wants to make a game instant answer, that's definitely possible depending on what's required.
