This Official Google Cast Extension available  above is  called Google Cast for the Chrome Browser and  will allow the sharing of media and tabs straight from Chrome Browser to a Chromecast connected TV.

Why this  “chrome cast gadget” can be revolutionary is because you  can pretty much see  anything online  on your desktop onto your tv now  via wi-fi. This technology is nothing  new ( really  check this page out ) where similar device was already on the market , but Google makes  this new device cheap and  easy.

Well it is not yet  available in Australia unfortunately , but you can buy it on  ebay for now where people are flogging it for $100 in Australia Ebay  which is a bit of a rip off. Id rather wait for it to sell here at a cheaper price.
