android-dinoDon’t you just love it when Google exhibits that kind of creative juice whenever they hide an Easter Egg somewhere in their software or apps? Having said that, one of their more recent Easter Egg engagements, if you can call it that, involve the latest Chrome Beta for Android version. In fact, this particular Easter Egg wants to make sure that the proverbial Jack does not end up being a dull boy through plenty of work, as it serves up a fun mini-game that will involve the pixelated dinosaur who turns up on Chrome’s “You’re offline” page.

In order to check out this unique mini-game, you will first need to have Chrome Beta installed on your Android-powered device – and you can get it from the Google Play Store if you do not already have it. After that, enter your device into Airplane mode, or perhaps take the manual steps to disable any active Wi-Fi or data connections. The whole point would be to go dark, so no Internet is best. Once that is done, fire up Chrome Beta. Tap the search/URL bar and enter “”, which ought to point you to the “You are offline” screen.

You ought to be able to see T-Rex in the top side, where tapping on it will kick off a “Night at the Museum” kind of experience, as the T-Rex will begin to stomp ahead. Tap on him to jump over the cacti that blocks its path, otherwise its rampage will come to and end.
