There are easter eggs in both the OptiFine website and in the OptiFine client. Some are only visible at certain dates, while others are still visible.

X-Clacks-Overhead

The OptiFine website returns standard HTTP headers.

In addition to the normal headers, the website also returns: x-clacks-overhead: GNU Terry Pratchett. X-Clacks-Overhead is an unofficial HTTP header to memorialize Terry Pratchett.
