Technically you can still "cast" a browser tab from Chrome. I'm doing it right now with YouTube as a test. The video quality isn't real good tho, far too choppy. Native Chromecast apps like Google Play movies are just as good as my FiOS TV as far as I see. Casting video browser tabs rather than using the proper Chromecast app isn't recommended. My guess is that Google may eventually work it in since they have the beta test feature for Chrome.Edited by Gatorguy - 9/7/13 at 2:55pm
