Angry Birds in Ubuntu using Chromium

The folks over at Rovio, creators of the now famous Angry Birds, have unleashed an HTML5 version of the popular game that’s designed to run in Chrome (or Chromium!) on any operating system.

install Chromium this way in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

Run the program and follow this link. Yes, this means that you can now play Angry Birds on Ubuntu, and luckily the performance of the game web-ified is still up to scratch.

Rovio currently have native support for Angry Birds on a number of mobile and desktop platforms such as iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, Amazon Kindle, Mac OS X and Windows, but have never supported Linux natively which means Ubuntu users have been left out in the cold till now.

I could coax the game into running under Firefox 4.01. It probably runs in other HTML5 compliant browsers too. At least you need the latest flash plugin installed.

Flash appears to be only necessary to play the sound. I'm playing using Chromium (the Open Source version of Chrome) and it plays great even with Flash blocked. If I allow flash, then I get all the sound effects and music.
