Has Chromecast been recently updated?
Just plugged it in and I now have the option to cast from my browser to my TV, which is pretty cool

Gonna be using my chromecast a lot more now!

would be nice if it did local files as my PC has a large movie collection. Might set up a home network so i can stream from PC to TV to Chromecast effortlessly but thats more money

@Jon @Hobbs

Do you people not have HDMI?
1) I use my laptop in bed and I really don't want a cable running along my bed when I'm trying to sleep. (I used to stream Netflix and put my tv on off timer, now I have a smart tv i don't need it)

2) My TV in my office is wall mounted and I already have cable management set up for the power+hdmi cable from my tv box. My PC is on the other side of the room to it and it would look ugly to have a single cable running up the wall

but yeah a super long HDMI cable would have solved all the problems, but it really isn't nice to see
