500px—you know, the popular photo-sharing app that Apple briefly pulled from the App Store due to concerns of nude photos and child pornography—well, it just came to the Chrome OS and Chrome browser.

“Today, we are excited to announce the launch of the 500px experience on a new platform, Google Chrome,” announced 500px in a blog post. “Our latest project is a new 500px Chrome Web Store app that can be downloaded from the Google Chrome store for Windows, Mac, and Chromebook computers, including the new touch-enabled Google Chromebook Pixel laptop.”

The Chrome app notably features the ability to browse images by categories, such as Popular, Editors’ Choice, Upcoming and Fresh, and it lets users create a personalized photo stream through its Flow function. Users can also tap or click to view photos in full-screen and share to Google+, Facebook, and Twitter with just one-click.

500px for Chrome is now available for free at the Chrome Web Store.
