Google saying buh-bye to Chrome Apps for Windows, Mac, Linux
#Google has touted its #Chrome browser as all you need for desktop computing on any operating system. But the search giant said in a blog post Friday that it will gradually be phasing out the browser’s apps for Windows, #Mac and #Linux machines. The apps range from photo-editing program #Pixlr Touch Up to games like a now-discontinued version of Angry Birds. You download them from the Chrome Web Store, launch them from the Chrome browser and they open in a separate window, as if they were a program installed on your hard drive. Didn’t know these apps were a feature of Chrome? You’re not alone. Google said in its post that few people who use Chrome on Mac, Windows and Linux machines also use the apps.
