Flipboard is no longer a service that you can only enjoy on mobile devices. From today, more than 2 million magazines on every topic imaginable are available to read in your web browser. Each one boasts Flipboard’s signature look and feel, but they’re been optimized for the larger screen on your desktop.
With Flipboard magazines now accessibly from web browser, you can share links with friends via email and social networks, and they can enjoy them anytime, anywhere — whether they’re existing Flipboard users or not. And if you receive a link via email that you happen to open on your desktop, you no longer need to reach for your smartphone or tablet to enjoy it.
Furthermore, you can share magazines directly from the web interface, and you can browse through all of the magazines Flipboard has to offer.
“Each magazine has an expansive, full-bleed cover, and pages can be “flipped” from left and right, just like on mobile devices,” Flipboard says on its blog. “Curators can continue to add content to their magazines from the Web and other Web magazines, but now they have a significant new way to grow readership.”
Here’s a video that demonstrates how Flipboard magazines look and feel on the web:
To enjoy Flipboard magazines on your desktop, you’ll need Internet Explorer 9, Safari, Chrome, or Firefox 11.
