Welcome to the discussion!
As part of the Mozilla project, I've heard endless "easter egg" discussions. Netscpe 4.x had over-used the about: protocol for numerous such hidden things, most of them just redirecting to some developer's homepage. Most of those were stripped in Mozilla code, though the most important, "about:mozilla" had even be updated and maintained (despite of some people wanting to kill it) and is still present in today's Firefox and SeaMonkey browser versions.
The most extensive discussion about an "easter egg" in our code was for sure the "kitchensink" bug report though. And we still do not ship the kitchen sink yet ;-)
