"I was sitting in my room, surfing the net and trying out the new Internet Explorer 8 Web browser. A thunderstorm was brewing outside, but I was too engrossed in playing with IE's new features to pay much attention to the weather.Suddenly there was a deafening crash. The lights began to flicker and then everything went dark. "Oh, no... a lightning strike!" I thought, worried that my beloved computer was now possibly fried.
But then my entire computer - from mouse to keyboard to screen - began to emit an odd, bright blue glow, as if it was somehow radioactive. "At least it still works," I thought, but the glow hurt my eyes, so I pinched them shut, only opening them again when something whistled past me, milimetres from my face, giving me an almighty fright.
"What the...?" I staggered around, looking for the culprit, and saw a white arrow bouncing around my room. Wait... how did my room with its white washed walls become yellow? Where was my furniture, and why was an hour glass hovering up in that corner? Where did my furniture go? Then, as I saw words and pictures beginning to appear around me rapidly, the realisation hit... along with a trill of fear.
I wracked my brains, trying to remember the last link I had clicked on before the lightning strike. I didn't have much time to think before the last picture loaded and I was face-to-face with a seemingly very alive, enormous lion."
You're now stuck inside the new Internet Explorer 8 browser, and need to escape! You can navigate from page-to-page and remember to make use of some of the new IE8 features in your adventures.
