That annoyingly addictive game is now also playable in your browser. Surf to http://chrome.angrybirds.com for more. And no, you don't need Chrome to play it. It'll give more options in Chrome, but for all intends and purposes, it plays nice enough here in Firefox 5.

The SD version works in Firefox 5.0 on a Mac, but the HD version does not.

Yeah, finicky stuff. It ran fine in IE9 for a long time, the HD version. Then all of a sudden, in the middle of a game it found I needed the Chrome Frame plug-in. But even with that it didn't work.

So I ended up installing Google Chrome, just for Angry Birds. Very stuck on 3-20 now. ;)

Indeed, funny and addictive .-)
(Once suddenly a new tab with big ad appeared. I've thought the game is over.)
