Microsoft launches easter egg game for Edge browser

"Upon the conclusion of the Easter Egg, the number one request from Insiders was to turn the surfing game into an endless runner as the permanent "offline game" for Microsoft Edge". Microsoft also stated that the company promises a few secrets in the game. But you can still play it while you're online.

Obviously, users will not download the Microsoft Edge browser only to play the new Surf game, but the release of this game clearly indicates that Microsoft is making efforts to update small details in its latest Edge browser. Time trial is self-explanatory, but Microsoft has added in coins to collect so you can shorten the time and find speedy routes. Surf as far as possible in an endless ocean, compete for the shortest time, or zig zag through as many gates as you can in a row. If you like your games even more casual, there is a reduced speed mode and there is a high-visibility mode for those with visual impairments. The game has been available for testers since February, but it's now part of Microsoft Edge version 83.

Just type in "edge://surf" into your URL bar and you're off to the races.

Microsoft is resolved to one-up Google where conceivable with its Chromium-based Edge program, and that incorporates one of the most significant areas: the cute min-game than the usual game you can play when you're disconnected.

Microsoft has also confirmed that the game supports keyboard, mouse, touch and gamepads including Xbox, PlayStation, Switch Pro and Xbox Adaptive controller and the setup instructions for each controller can be found under the game settings.

However, it can be said that the Chrome Dinosaur game and the Microsoft Edge game have very similar gameplay, as in both the games, the player is required to move forward (or downward) and dodge obstacles.
