If you’re using a recent-ish version of Google Chrome or Chromium then you have support for ‘web apps’.

If you can’t see web apps when you install them, grab the latest Chromium version by adding the Chromium Daily PPA.

Installation is easy.

  1. Download the .zip from here
  2. Extract it somewhere
  3. Drag the .crx file into Chrom/ium and install

I’m sure Nicolas would appreciate feedback to continue developing the launcher, so if you’ve got some nifty ideas to improve this web app – let us know in the comments!
