If there is a single takeaway message from this post, it would be this. Listen very carefully, Google’s Chrome “app launcher” for offline browser apps will finally be landing on the Windows platform, although Mac and Linux users are required to play the patience card for a little bit longer. So far, Google has rolled out an early stage “app launcher” for its Chrome browser, where it will come with a container for browser-based apps which were specially designed to function offline.
This particular feature remained for a long time, a domain of Google’s Chromebooks that are manufactured by the likes of Samsung, HP, Lenovo and Acer. Google has described it to be “a dedicated home for your apps which makes them easy to open outside the browser.” Having been released yesterday in the Chrome developer channel for Windows, this particular launcher is also said to be available “soon” if you are a Mac or Linux user. You know what they say, good things come to those who wait, so a little bit of patience would be ideal in such a situation.
