    Here's something from the Chrome Webstore Developers Page:

    Will apps work on Google TV?Google TV runs the Chrome browser, so it should be able to run your hosted web app. Installing apps directly from Chrome Web Store will not be available on Google TV at launch however. Users may directly type the URL for your hosted app, or use traditional search to find and start your app.

    You're not supposed to, because the Chrome version on Google TV does not have all the features available on the computer. GTV's Chrome does not currently allow add-ons, extensions, or plug-ins.

    Chrome for windows is chrome for windows

    Chrome for Linux is chrome for Linux

    Chrome for Google TV is chrome for Google TV

    However, chrome for windows is not the same as chrome for Linux which is not the same as chrome for Google TV.

    You can expect them to be close... but somethings are different.

    Heh. Yeah, I remember one of the advertising campaigns for presidency was "A chicken in every pot and two cars in every garage". And while that candidate took the office and finished his term, I'm still waiting for particular piece of advertisement to come to fruition.
