It might seem counterintuitive to play an offline game while still being connected to the internet. However, there are a couple of advantages of playing the Chrome Dino while you are online. 

  • One, you don't have to unplug your internet connection or disconnect from Wi-Fi in order to play the game. Since you can manually load the Chrome Dino, you don't have to disturb the tech guys every time you need to disconnect or connect to the internet.

  • Two, you can play the Dinosaur Game whenever you want. Previously, no one could play this T-Rex game as long as they were connected to the internet. This was a disadvantage if you loved playing the dino runner game, but you had access to stable internet connectivity. 

With the option to load the Chrome Dino whenever you want, you don't have to wait for the internet to slow down or cut off in order to play your favorite game.
