Angry Birds Chrome App Version Running on Sharp 70 inch LCD TV

At the recent annual Google I/O developer conference, Rovio head Peter Vesterbacka came on stage to promote and demonstrate his company’s sensational creation as an installable app on the Google Chrome browser. For this endeavor Rovio has made use of the Google Web Toolkit (GWT) in order to build & develop the functional version of the Web-based app. All the hosting requirements of the game are to be fulfilled by the Google App engine. The game is available for no extra charge in Google's Chrome Web Store. According to Vesterbacka the think tank at Rovio liked Chrome in particular & decided to make it the chosen browser for the developing the online version of the game because of it’s sheer simplicity & stability & of course the rock solid experience that Google offer as a backing to any chrome app developers. Building Web apps especially online games like angry birds online with obvious graphic & performance requirements can be a very complicated process, as noted by CNET's Stephen Shankland in his live blog of the event. According to Vesterbacka, this is why browsers like chrome are so popular with online app developers, the performance & stability of the browser itself along with the never ending support & aid provided by Google make it a package that is sure fire must have for any ambitious web app developer.

Rovio has built quite a lot of web exclusive levels that are available only for the Chrome version of angry birds game and the game includes some Chrome-specific tweaks, mods & add-ons like Chrome rocks, flowers, and clouds. With the Chrome version Rovio will also make use of the new in-app payment system from Google to allow users to buy & download premium contents which may include anything from extra levels to special power ups. If Vesterbacka’s mood was any indication it was clear that Rovio are very happy with the issue of the price point. Google is now allowing developers to keep 95 percent of the revenue generated from their apps. "We're all for lower taxes," he said. "And 5 percent is fair."
