Just order myself a Steam controller, looks pretty cool!

Does anyone know if it's supported in the browser gamepad API?

Some people claim that, as soon as you use Steam big picture mode, it would work.

I have not been able to get it to work though. The only thing that really did it for me are wired Xbox360 controllers and 100% compatibles.
Wireless ones or something that deviates a bit or is connected via a redirection software has not been working for me.

I am working with a wireless xbox360 and a ps2 wired with an adapter, both works good.

Unfortunately the steam controller doesn't really work with things outside of steam big picture mode. There are some workarounds to make it partially work and I am hoping that will change in the future because I love the controller. Outside of big picture mode you do still have mouse control so if its a mouse only style game you could use it.

Did you do anything "special" to get them to run? Or did it just work out of the box?

Yes, but everything else doesn't ;) And @Lof seems to have gotten it to run somehow.

Yes I did, for the xbox, but I don't think it was C2 or browser related, my receiver was not functioning well with the latest driver and I read somewhere that reverting it to the older version from 2009 (official builtin in windows, no download required) fixes it and it did.

The ps2 controller works fine without any special requirements.

Really, do you mean I can't use even on native window games?

More or less yea. There are some workarounds and hopefully some software updates in the future but you configure all the buttons within steam big picture mode so most games won't recognize the controller as a controller unless you launch them through steam big picture mode. I absolutely love the controller when I can use it though.
