Official Chromecast Browser Extension Hits Chrome Web Store

chromecastGoogle’s official extension for enabling Chrome browser content to be streamed to a Chromecast-enabled TV has been added to the Chrome Web Store.

The free add-on, which requires Google’s freshly unveiled Chomecast device to be of any use, works with both regular tabs – letting you browse ‘sites, photos, or even video from the best screen in your home’ – as well as ‘Cast optimised sites’ such as Netflix and YouTube.
