Google makes Chrome App Launcher a full release for Windows users
Google has quietly released its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/290066==https://chrome.google.com/webstore/launcher" rel='nofollow'>Chrome App Launcher</a> for Windows. Previously only available as a developer preview, the full-release app allows for rapid access to various Google services and installed Chrome apps directly from the Windows 7 and Windows 8 menu bar, as well as through the start page on Windows 8. <br><br />
<br />
The launcher has been available to use for quite some time on Chrome OS, and appeared in the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/290064==http://www.macnn.com/articles/13/05/20/should.simplify.sharing.from.facebook.connected.ap ps/" rel='nofollow'>Chromium edition</a> for Windows, Mac, and Linux a few months ago. While the launch has taken place for Windows users, as spotted <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/290065==http://www.engadget.com/2013/07/19/googles-chrome-app-launcher-gets-full-release-for-windows/" rel='nofollow'>by</a> <em>Engadget</em>, the OS X and Linux versions have yet to be fully released, though today's launch will suggest they are not that far off from release. <br />
<br />
The Chrome App Launcher brings up a similar menu to the app listings in the Chrome browser, loading up a pop-up window similar to the Start Menu containing installed Chrome items. The top of the Chrome App Launcher window also acts as a search bar for apps, which could be useful for those with more than a few pages of Chrome apps, though it appears not to provide full Google search capabilities.
