TweetDeck recently announced the release of its popular desktop application as a web app in the Chrome browser. Affectionately called "ChromeDeck," users can now access their TweetDeck accounts directly from the web. No longer is a desktop download necessary.
While the web version does a great job of capturing most of its popular desktop features, the company admits that it has not received them all. However, over the coming months, ChromeDeck will receive the most innovative features before the desktop version because of the web's flexibility.
From the very cursory level, I like where ChromeDeck is going. It seems to pull all of my feeds and updates in real time. Although, maybe a bit too fast. With thousands of follows, the updates are whipping down the page faster than I can read them.
I suspect I can control that when I separate the "Home" column into individual Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn columns.
If you are interested in playing with the new ChromeDeck, follow this link. Don't forget to watch the introductory video and share your thoughts in the comment section below.
