As you may remember, last week Mountain View-based search engine giant Google as well as Finish mobile app developer Rovio Mobile announced that Angry Birds is available in the Chrome Web Store. Google Chrome users could get the game and enjoy 63 levels of pig-smashing fun and 7 additional levels specially created for the Chrome web browser – all free of charge of course.

Here’s the first update on this story: you don’t need to be on Google’s Chrome browser and install Angry Birds as a Chrome app to play the game. You can play Angry Birds in any other web browser as long as it supports HTML5.

This means you can play it in Firefox, Internet Explorer 9 (IE9), Opera and any other browser that supports HTML5. To play the game, just go to chrome.angrybirds.com/.

Here’s the second update related to the immensely popular Angry Birds game: Wes Bos, a designer, developer and entrepreneur from Toronto, used his JavaScript and HTML5 experience to uncover an easy way to unlock all the levels in the Angry Birds for Chrome game, including the special Chrome levels.

To unlock all levels in the Angry Birds game, just paste the following line of code in the address bar: javascript: var i = 0; while (i<=69) { localStorage.setItem('level_star_'+i,'3'); i++; } window.location.reload();

To lock all levels, paste this line of code in the address bar:
javascript: var i = 1; while (i<=69) { localStorage.setItem('level_star_'+i,'-1'); i++; } window.location.reload();

Wes Bos explains how he came across the hack to unlock all the levels in the game:
“In the talk Rovio did at Google IO, they mentioned they were using HTML5′s LocalStorage. If you open up Web Inspector in chrome, you’ll see they are keeping track of your score and stars with localstorage. Lucky for us, that means we can use setItem() set all 70 levels to 3 and get access to them all.”
