I was wondering why google chrome's team replaced the sad face with a dinosaur when the browser is offline (not many dinosaurs use the internet, i hope). Is the dinosaur lost too?

And why did they remove the famous Star Trek line "He's dead, Jim!" .

I could think of two reasons

  • a link to Mozilla, which wouldn't make much sense, if you ask me
  • you're offline, you dinosaur!
