    I am currently looking to purchase the new Chromecast as I have read that it can cast the Google Chrome browser from a PC/Mac/Smartphone.

    What is the performance like when casting this to the TV?
    Will this play all content that is viewed on the source device? E.g. Streaming video like Flash?

    Well if you're casting a tab with flash video playing inside it its not going to be bearable at all. But casting tabs for reading and scrolling is good but as far as "system requirements" for the chrome cast I would would really recommend a dual band 802.11n router at the least for a adequate experience. But as far as flash video goes I wouldn't even bother.

    Hope this helps

    That's disappointing, I was trying to get around streaming Sky On-Demand (similar service to Netflix for Sky TV customers) through my Macbook to Chromecast instead of paying an extra £5 in the UK.
