Angry Birds on Chrome now uses Web Audio API

Rovio has updated their Chrome edition of Angry Birds to use Web Audio API.

This removes the need for Adobe Flash Player in the browser for sound effects.

Angry Birds on Chrome now uses Web Audio API

Chrome users can now enjoy the game without requiring any third party plugin even though the browser ships with Adobe Flash Player by default!

Google representative Scott Knaster spoke about this move:

Last week Angry Birds for Chrome was updated to use the Web Audio API for all its in-game audio for Chrome users, which means Chrome users get the full Angry Birds experience, without any plugins. The Web Audio API supports a wide variety of use cases, including the high fidelity and low latency requirements of games. Users of other supported browsers will still get sound via Flash or HTML5 audio.
