IE8 Treasure Hunt: Find $10,000 and Keep it !

Posted on June 18, 2009. Filed under: Freebies, News, Super Fast Updates | Tags: , , , , , |

      Microsoft Australia has announced a treasure hunting competition. The rules are very simple. They have buried $10,000 on a website, you’ll need to find the amount and once you find it, you can keep it.

    Remember! You’ll need to use the latest Internet Explorer 8 to be able to participate in the competition.



    How to participate:-

1. Ditch the web browser you’re using. If you try to find the $10,000 with your current browser, you’ll get nowhere.

2. Download Microsoft’s best ever browser, Internet Explorer 8. It’s the only browser capable of cracking all the clues.

3. Follow @tengrand_IE8 on Twitter for the daily clues. Clues will be released at random times from Friday 19th June.

4. Use the clue and your brilliance to deduce where the $10,000 is hidden.

The competition will end on 17th September 2009.

      There’s no stopping from international users from also participating in the hunt, but the rules of the competition state only residents of Australia can claim the prize. So if you aren’t from Australia but have somehow stumbled across the treasure, it might be wise to pair up with an Aussie and give him a slice of the winnings.

    NOTE:- If you downloaded the "Compatibility View" pack from Windows Update, your IE8 will be mistakenly identified as Internet Explorer 7 since it automatically applies Compatibility View to, where this competition is hosted.
To fix this problem, disable the compatibility view list by going to "Tools -> Compatibility View settings" and uncheck "Include updated website lists from Microsoft" option.
