It’s official: productivity is dead.

At the Google I/O Developers Conference today, Rovio’s Peter Vesterbacka announced that the studio is porting its popular Angry Birds game to the Web, making it available anywhere and everywhere.

Starting today, it’s coming to the Web via Google Chrome, and will be available to play offline as well.

The game runs on other browsers, but those who get it through the Chrome Web store will have access to the Mighty Eagle in-app purchase. Google introduced in-app purchases for its applications at the conference morning.

The game is already on an impressive array of platforms including Android, iOS, Windows Phone, webOS and Sony’s PlayStation just to name a few.
