According to searchengineland searching [tilt] or [askew] produces a similar effect.

It works on the desktop if you use Chrome or another webkit browser.

It's acheived by adding webkit-specific "-webkit-transform: rotate(1deg);" CSS tranform.

Not quite sure why they didn't use -moz-transform on Firefox (Gecko) browsers which works the same way.
