The Internet Explorer 4.0 Easter Egg!
What would a major new release from Microsoft be without an Easter Egg (those hidden routines added in by the original programmers for their, and your amusement)? Internet Explorer 4.0 is no exception. To find it, do the following:
Start IE4 normally.
From the menu, select Help, then About Internet Explorer.
Wait for the About Internet Explorer window to appear, then hold down the CTRL key and keep it down throughout the rest of this sequence.
Grab the small "e" logo in the upper right-hand corner and drag it onto the globe on the left, release it.
Grab the "e" once more and drop in onto the main text that says "Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0", release it again.
You should now see a button that says Unlock. Click it once - the globe should start to vibrate.
Grab the "e" one last time and drop it on the globe again.
Stand back and watch the show - see if you can make it to the end. ...and prepare yourself, it's a long show...
...by the way, you can let go of the CTRL key now!
