One teensy little problem there - it would be criminal (not just "not lawful", but explicitly prohibited) in quite a few countries (Computer Misuse Act in the UK). I know this is Google who seem to have a different idea of what should be legal, but I think even they'd find this hard to defend.

Err, I don't !

OK, I tell a lie - I've been there a couple of times this year when I've been told there's an interesting doodle.

Put the exploit on every page and that's a different matter.
