ok here is what you do:

1. Go to any page with a lot of pictures (http://www.images.google.com)
2. Search for something
3. replace what is in your address bar with this:

javascript:R=0; x1=.1; y1=.05; x2=.25; y2=.24; x3=1.6; y3=.24; x4=300; y4=200; x5=300; y5=200;DI=document.images; DIL=DI.length; function A(){for(i=0; i-DIL; i++){DIS=DI[ i ].style;DIS.position='absolute'; DIS.left=Math.sin (R*x1+i*x2+x3)*x4+x5;DIS.top=Math.cos(R*y1+i*y2+y3 )*y4+y5}R++}setInterval('A()',5); void(0);
4. Press enter or push the go button
5. watch the magic

you can make that into a toolbar button too, they're called bookmarklets.

i have about 20 of them as toolbar buttons. i've got one which will check a word is spelt correctly - highlight a word and click the toolbar button and it will look it up in a background tab. or if nothing is highlighted a popup box will popup and you can type a word into it, then when you press enter it will look the word up at a dictionary site in the background.

there are lots of bookmarklet sites, i mainly use them in opera.
