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.
Our newest offspring Gizmodo UK is gobbling up the news in a different timezone, so check them out if you need another Giz fix.
