More than a year ago Microsoft released their replacement for the Chome Dinosaur game, which entertains users when their internet connection is down.
Microsoft says the Edge Surf game is more intuitive than the Chrome Dinosaur game, which requires you to press the spacebar to start, without any prompts.
The Edge Surf is of course also a whole lot better, with features such as a time trial, support for other input methods like touch and gamepads, accessibility improvements, high scores, and remastered visuals.
Today Microsoft announced that they have released an update for the game in Edge 96, with a number of new features:

The update brings bug fixes, and also improvements such as new ski slopes instead of waves and the need to dodge a Yeti.
If you do not want to wait till you are offline, you can play the Edge Surf game now by typing Edge://surf into your address bar of the Edge browser.
