Further blurring the line between desktop computers, laptops and mobile gadgets, Google has stuffed the app launcher from its Chromebook into its desktop Chrome web browser.
Ta-da. That's it.
For now, only Windows users on the developer release channel of the Chrome web browser can try out the launcher, but versions for Mac OS X and Linux are "coming soon", according to the Google Chromium Blog.
The feature only shows up if you install a Chrome-packaged app from Google's web store, at which point you'll get an extra icon in your Windows taskbar to run the app offline.
Since the launcher isn't ready for a full release yet, Google is inviting developers to give it a whirl and then let the Oompa-Loompas know what bugs need fixing on Stack Overflow or the Chromium Apps Google Group. ®
