Google often responds to world events by adding entertaining Easter eggs into its search page. And the most recent one celebrates the liberation of the Suez Canal, now that the massive ship has been freed after blocking the passageway for the better part of a week. Hurrah, indeed.

To enjoy this bit of web design magic, simply type 'Suez Canal' or 'Ever Given' (the name of the ship) into Google, and see a row of delightfully happy ships chugging freely along the screen. To create your own celebratory animations, see our animation tools roundup. And if this whets your appetite for more Easter egg fun, head over to our pick of super-fun Google Easter eggs.
