Download & Play Angry Birds for Free with Google Chrome

Download and play Angry Birds for free with Chrome

Sick of Angry Birds yet? Too bad, because now you can download and play Angry Birds completely for free with the Chrome web browser. This was just released at Google IO 2011, and the game should run on any OS with the Chrome browser. If you somehow avoided downloading Angry Birds, Rio, and the 56,000 other variations for Mac, iOS, Windows, Android, and whatever else, now you have no excuse to not be assimilated.

Grab the free download from the Chrome web store

You’ll need to be using the Chrome (or Safari!) web browser to download and play this. The game is practically the same although there’s an extra set of Chrome specific levels for some new gameplay. Angry Birds Chrome plays reasonably well although sound doesn’t appear to work (in Mac OS X at least) and if you have more than a few browser tabs open the gameplay gets choppy, but for a web game it’s pretty good and it does make sense to exist in a browser. Happy gaming.

    Thanks for the tip about flash blockers – I set my FlashBlock to always allow this site (chrome.angrybirds.com), and now I have sound! Woohoo! Not nearly as fun without sound. Thanks again. Would be great if they updated this article with that fix.
