Using Firefox as my main browser and often surfing in the internet I surely spend a lot of time with this piece of software. Maybe a bit too long … In an incident of pure boredom I decided to remove every module out of the task bar (positioned on the right). And what then happened was unexpected.

When you remove every module, a monochrome unicorn appears.

If you then put your mouse cursor onto the surface, the unicorn shows its real beauty.

Being really risky you can also click and the unicorn will show its happiness by spinning in circles.

It is just a funny little gag I found out and wanted to share.

Continuing to work with vectors (see ‘Circle Crawler’), I thought to include the mouse cursor. In this simulation there are 𝟣 ⨉ 𝟣-sized entities (𝟦𝟢𝟢 of them) which create a circle around the center. By going near the entities with your mouse cursor, you push them away. Every entity has the urge to go back to its original position.

Usage

  • ‘m’ toggles if entities move or stay.

Inspired by the current weather — my favourite weather, the rain — I made this simple simulation. There are no controls, just look at it quietly and peacefully.
