Google's Scrapping Chrome's App Launcher on Windows, Mac and Linux

Like opening Chrome apps using Google’s dedicated launcher? Tough: As of July, it will be entirely scrapped on Windows, Mac and Linux.

Why? Google says that its “found that users on Windows, Mac, and Linux prefer to launch their apps from within Chrome”. Apps, of course, are here to stay. The launcher will continue to live on in Chrome OS, for which it was originally designed. [Google via VentureBeat]
