Google Results for Hexadecimal, Binary and Octal

Google Results for Hexadecimal, Binary and Octal

It's time for some more fun with Google.

I've mentioned a couple of other Easter eggs Google has incorporated into Google Maps and its other products, but today I stumbled upon a new one. When you perform a Google search on different numbering systems, Google changes the number of search results to match the numbering system specified. Thus far, I have found that it works for binary, hexadecimal, even the less common system, octal, and of course decimal goes without saying.




I skimmed down to the footer of the page for each of these in anticipation that the search result page numbers would also have changed, but looks like they kept them in decimal format.
