If you can’t get enough of the Rovio Mobile-developed game Angry Birds, then you will be glad to find out that there’s a new way to play the game – in your Chrome web browser; or better yet, in Google’s Chrome web browser that is installed on your computer.

Mountain View-based search engine giant Google and Finnish mobile developer Rovio Mobile have both announced that Angry Birds is now available in the Chrome Web Store here (the game is offered free of charge). If you’re not on Chrome, you can get the browser straight from Google here.

“Angry Birds, the most popular game for mobile devices, has arrived in the Chrome Web Store. Built using the latest technologies, Angry Birds is as much fun on the web as on your phone. In addition, you can try beating the new web-only, Chrome-inspired levels,” said Rahul Roy-chowdhury, Product Manager on the Google Chrome team.

“You can now play Angry Birds on the web! Go check out the game in glorious high definition resolution on the Chrome Web Store,” announced Rovio Mobile. The developer went on to say that the Angry Birds version rolled out to the Chrome Web Store is a Beta release that features 63 levels from the original game and 7 additional levels specially created for Chrome. “We are working on bringing more levels to Chrome, and planning on making the Mighty Eagle available as an in-app purchase option,” concluded Rovio Mobile.

Moving on, Rovio Mobile also announced that it rolled out Beach Voley, the first update for the Angry Birds Rio game that is based on the Rio movie. The action in this update is located on the Copacabana beach and as Rovio Mobile explained, “this new episode consists of more marmoset mauling action.”

The update is already available on the App Store and on the Amazon App Store and will become available on the Android Market and on GetJar in the near future.

Angry Birds Rio fans may also want to know that the Angry Birds Rio Samba single has been rolled out to iTunes (get it here).
