Angry Birds flutters to the web with Google Chrome

Peter Vesterbacka of Rovio
The Angry Birds are officially everywhere (you can't escape), as it was announced today at Google's I/O Conference that the bird-slinging game is coming to the web through Google Chrome. No, these aren't extra details on Angry Birds coming to Facebook, Rovio, the game's creator, has brought a new version of the game to Chrome OS and the Chrome web browser through the Chrome Web Store.

After navigating all that Chrome, users will enjoy soaring through new levels with amusing nods to Chrome in surrounding flowers and wildlife. Rovio's Peter Vesterbacka made the announcement, and said, "Now we'll make those flights more bearable," showing off the offline mode of the game (game data is stored locally). According to Vesterbacka, this edition of Angry Birds runs on OpenGL web development technology. Come to think of it, this could be the same way Rovio is bringing its hit game to Facebook, though we'll soon enough.

The Angry Birds Online is available right now on the Chrome Web Store, so give it a fling.
