Chrome's Lord of the Rings Easter Egg

Well it is probably charitable to call it an Easter Egg, but I wanted to have a look at the code that is created in Chrome in the "New Tab" view.

I didn't get very far before I found this rather excellent comment, which I wanted to share.

To replicate;

  1. Open Google Chrome
  2. Create a new tab
  3. Open Dev Tools (you can also view the source, but there is a shed load of stuff in the to work through.)

Apart from this nerdy reference there is also a lot of code (1.2 MB worth, to be precise) that I want to spend some time looking through, expect some more posts in the future about it.
