The Day the Earth Stood Still: Cool Firefox Easter Egg

Like the previous releases of Firefox, Firefox 3.0 is also hiding a cool Easter egg surprise.

Follow the following steps to see this cool Easter egg:

  1. In the Firefox Address Bar type the following: about:robots
  2. Press Enter.
  3. Behold, a great Easter Egg will appear on your screen. It is a message from Gort the Robot from the movie 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' and reads as follows:

Welcome Humans! We have come to visit you in peace and with goodwill! * Robots may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. * Robots have seen things you people wouldn’t believe. * Robots are Your Plastic Pal Who’s Fun To Be With. * Robots have shiny metal posteriors which should not be bitten. And they have a plan.

As many of you know, the updated version of the 1951 classic ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’ featuring Keanu Reeves' as Klaatu will soon be at a theater near you. And with virtual visionary insight, the people at Mozilla seemed to be on the ball that this would be the year of the retelling of ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’, fascinating indeed.
