I see that there is an HTML version of Angry Birds. How do I use it? I'd also like to have the icon on my launcher so I can run it as it's own application.

It's just a webpage. Firefox 4.0.1 (what should ship in Ubuntu 11.04) plays it fine, albeit a little bit slower.

Play the BETA version. (Only the 63 levels of stage 1 and a few bonus levels.)

To make an ad-hoc launcher, when using Firefox, merely drag the favicon in the address bar to your desktop.

About the icon of the launcher you should go , using chrome, to the tools icon (a wrench on the right side) then to the "tools" submenu and the "create application shortcut" option after that.

Afterwards you can just drag ' n ' drop the icon in the launcher, getting what you want.

A shortcut of that style can be made using firefox as well if i recall correctly - performance is a little problematic on my firefox though

*by the way, what do you mean "how do i use it?" ?

But it can be installed in chromium/chrome as a plugin as well.

Ok copied this from Gmail.desktop unity launcher but works

#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Angry Birds
Exec=/usr/bin/chromium-browser --app=

It's just a webpage. It doesn't require Chrome. – badp May 12 '11 at 12:24
