Chrome Angry Birds Doesn’t Work on Mac?

By Sidharth | Games

The very popular Angry Birds game is now available online with Google’s flagship web browser, Google Chrome. Noticing the increasing popularity of Angry Birds, Google made the announcement today in Google I/O conference that everyone can install Angry Birds and play it online for free with the Chrome browser.

Any machine with Chrome browser installed should be able to run Angry Birds, or so I thought. And so, for some unknown reason, Angry Birds just doesn’t work on Mac.

Angry Birds Not Working on Mac

On my iMac machine, after launching Angry Birds on Chrome, all I could hear is the Angry Birds theme song with no gameplay option. Launching the Standard version yields the same blank page, and nothing seems to fix the issue.

The issue is somewhat similar to the YouTube Black Box. Right now, there isn’t much one could do to fix the game. Our only hope is to wait for the folks at Google to delve into this and resolve the issue as soon as possible.

Now if anyone could tell me how to play Angry Birds on Safari, I’d be very happy.

    I’m having the same issue on my iMac which is running the latest Chrome version. The first time I played it in Chrome, Angry Birds played fine, but after that, all I got was the theme music. Tried playing through Safari instead and it worked great, but as of today, Safari consistently crashes on the Angry Birds page. Maybe Google stuck a little anti-Safari tweak in their code or am I just being paranoid?

Runs perfectly fine on Chrome installed on my MacBook Pro. 🙂 Make sure you’ve the latest version of Chrome or try in other browsers.

    I have the latest version of Chrome. Strange that it doesn’t work on Chrome and Firefox.

    It also didn’t work in my iMac. Chrome is up to date. Ran fine in Safari, though (oh, the irony!). The only other strange thing I noticed is that flash content, specially video, sometimes “flashes”(no pun intended) or blinks in Chrome. Go figure.

I had the same problem, but it works in Safari (just paste the http://chrome.angrybirds.com/ URL right in there)!

    Ah, thanks! Loads perfectly on Safari browser. Cheers…

    Update: Neat! It’s fun to play on a larger screen.
