More than a year ago Microsoft releaesed 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, which will hopefully win Microsoft some converts. It offers 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 Canary, with a number of new features:
