Popular mobile based game Angry Birds is now available online for free (for the first few themes). The online version, currently in Beta, is developed primarily for Google Chrome browser, but it seems that Firefox etc. users can access the web game just fine at Angry Birds Chrome’s official site, at least for the current moment.
Angry Birds was first released for Apple OS in late 2009 and is arguably the most popular mobile game application to date. It has been released to other platforms (Android etc.) over the period, and its popularity is still rising, with expectation of 100 million downloads in China alone in near future.
The web based Angry Birds won’t be free eternally though; gamers will have to pay to access “premium levels” when the Beta testing is over. The paid version of the game (on Apple etc.) is pretty affordable, so the upgrade should be quite cheap as well.
Though to be honest, the experience of playing the game on web browser is far less interesting than playing it on iPad or similar touch-screen devices.
