I was wondering why google chrome's team replaced the sad face with a dinosaur on the browser when we are not connected to the internet. (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!" .

    No internet, what are you like in the age of the dinosaurs or summink innit. – Roger Attrill Feb 27 '14 at 12:45

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!
