Aside from the everything being flipped, you can still use the new version of Google just as you would before: You can sign in to your Google account, browse the Google dashboard, and check your settings — but if you want to read it you might want to use a mirror.

For an added bonus, Product Hunt’s Ryan Hoover discovered that you can type in “Do a barrel roll” in the search bar to cause the search engine to perform a little trick and temporarily return to normal.
