Google’s Chrome Browser Will Soon be Controlled by Gamepads

Postby BlueWater on Fri Nov 25, 2011 10:25 pm

A lot of you read Giz using Google Chrome — which means a good percentage of you should be interested in the news that Chrome will soon have plug-and-play gamepad support added. It'll work on any computer (or Chromebook) running the Chrome browser, and according to Google, will be a seamless experience.

That means in theory you should be able to plug in a joystick or gamepad and start controlling the browser straight away, without having to install software. Alongside gamepads, webcams and microphones will have similar plug-and-play support, which will open up the door for some nice HTML5 web apps fun.

The update is expected to land early next year, according to Google's Paul Kinlan, who made the announcement at the Develop conference in Liverpool, England yesterday.
