DADA.js is a

Windows 98 dialogs pop up with configurable random phrases, icons and sounds. The dialogs are spinning, pulsing, rotating, and even move away from your cursor if you try to close them.
Dada (/ˈdɑːdɑː/) or Dadaism was an art movement of the European avant-garde in the early 20th century. [...] The beginnings of Dada correspond to the outbreak of World War I. For many participants, the movement was a protest against the bourgeois nationalist and colonialist interests, which many Dadaists believed were the root cause of the war, and against the cultural and intellectual conformity—in art and more broadly in society—that corresponded to the war. Many Dadaists believed that the 'reason' and 'logic' of bourgeois capitalist society had led people into war. They expressed their rejection of that ideology in artistic expression that appeared to reject logic and embrace chaos and irrationality. For example, George Grosz later recalled that his Dadaist art was intended as a protest "against this world of mutual destruction."
In this spirit and to celebrate DADA's 100th anniversary, DADA.js is supposed to bring confusion, havoc and fun to the web.
It can also be used to announce DADA performances ;)
