Google Chrome keeps you entertained when you're not connected to the internet

Google Chrome keeps you entertained when you're not connected to the internet

This cunning feature has been around since 2014, when the 404 error page was re-designed, so if you're a huge Chrome user, the chances are, you'll properly already know about this. We wanted to let people know who don't know about it, as it'll ease the pain of not being connected to the web.

With the internet and connectivity getting better and better all the time, you may never even see the error page telling you that Chrome cannot connect to the internet.

Sometimes when you're at home happily on the Wi-Fi watching Netflix, visiting, or reading the news on other sites, your connection may drop out, and that's when you'll the the Chrome error message that says: "Unable to connect to the internet".

Before the heartbreaking notice that informs you you;re no longer connected, sits a T-Rex in a kind of bumpy and not very built road. But, inside this static picture, there's a great, mindless game waiting for you.

You can activate the game by pressing the spacebar. Once you have done this, the T-Rex will start to move along the screen, and some cacti plants will start to appear. If you hit a cacti - it's game over! To miss the cacti, press the spacebar to jump over them.

You also have a little score that shows up in the top right hand corner of the screen. If you do hit a cacti, the game will end and tell you what score you got. But don't worry, you can play again by hitting the spacebar.

Hopefully, it won't be too long until you get your connection back, and when you do, the error page will disappear. The game resets itself every time, so the next time you're not connected to the internet and want to play the game, you'll have to get yourself a new high-score!
