Without a doubt, a lot of smartphone users prefer the Google Chrome browser over any other browsers and if you’ve ever tried using Chrome when you have a bad internet connection, you probably have stumbled upon the Chrome Dino easter egg which keeps you busy while your network tries to reconnect. For some of us we just like to play the Chrome offline game because it’s fun to play. Microsoft has followed in this footstep and launch Edge Surf game for its Edge browser and after playing it for some time, it seems to be a lot more interesting to play than the Chrome Dino game.
The Microsoft Edge Surf game has been available for testers since February 2020 and just rolled out a few days ago. Unlike the Chrome Dino game, Edge Surf game can be played with a mouse, gamepad, keyboard, and even touchscreen. Although the Edge Surf game is a lot more interesting to play, the gameplay is quite similar to the Chrome Dino game. Players have to control the skier and move forward while dodging obstacles and sea monsters too.
Microsoft also took a step further to make the game available while you’re online (Yes, you can play while you have a data connection), unlike the Chrome’s dinosaur game which is online available offline. The Surf game allows you to choose between 7 characters and also comes with 3 different modes, to give users a challenging yet fun experience.

The Edge surfing game modes, includes the classic Let’s Surf, Time Trial, and Zig Zag.
Let’s Surf Mode: In this mode, players can play in an endlessly, you have to dodge obstacles and also save yourself from the Kraken chasing you in the game.
