In what I think is an interesting experiment, CBS this morning debuted a “60 Minutes” application that you can find in and launch from the Chrome Web Store (which just got a major facelift).
Granted, “adding it to Chrome” doesn’t really do anything but take you to this page, which you can just open in Chrome just like you would any page, but the Web app does look pretty nice.
Powered by HTML5 and CSS3 animations, the Chrome app delivers high-quality video of “60 Minutes” program content, starting with the recently aired interview of Walter Isaacson, Steve Jobs’s biographer. His book recently hit the stores, in case you hadn’t heard.
CBS says the app will also feature previous segments, clips, and new original content from the “60 Minutes” online series 60MinutesOvertime.com.
Users can browse segments by categories such as Newsmakers, Politics, Science, Business, Sports, Entertainment and Nature, as well as by correspondent.
