Google has introduced a cool trick to their search engine when you search for the word "Thanos". People who search for the Avengers' villain's name on Google will see the Infinity Gauntlet at the top of the search results, when you click on it it snaps its fingers just like Thanos and your search results start vanishing one by one.

This trick by Google mimics Thanos’ snap in the Avengers: Infinity War movie which leads to half of the population fading away and disappearing.
