What you need to know

  • Microsoft's surf game is now available on browsers other than Edge.
  • The surf game is a basic zig-zag game where you avoid obstacles.
  • The full version of the surf game is only available on Edge and includes more game modes.

Microsoft's surf game is a fun way to kill time on the Microsoft Edge browser if you've lost your internet connection. It initially rolled out almost a year ago within the Edge browser and is found by entering edge://surf in the address bar. Now, the pixelated glory of the surf game is available on other browsers, including the popular Google Chrome.

You can play the game on any browser other than Edge by going to the surf game's new website. The version online is the "lite" version and doesn't have some of the features from the full-fat version in the Edge browser. The full version on Edge has different game modes, saves your high score, and has hidden Easter Eggs.

Senior project manager over Edge, William Devereux, shared the news of the surf game's new website on Twitter.

Having an offline game for the Edge browser was a highly requested feature. It appears that people like the game, as Microsoft has decided to make it generally available on the web.

Devereux also points out that you can earn some Microsoft Rewards points for playing the surf game. It's only five points, but that's better than nothing. You can then use your Microsoft Rewards points on Xbox games or other cool content.
