Google to add Chrome Apps link in your Bookmarks bar

appsbutton

Is this a vision of things to come on ChromeOS? We’ve seen this morning (care of 9to5Mac) that Google are preparing to add a direct shortcut to your Chrome Apps and Extensions to the left side of your bookmarks menu bar. You can see this in the left side of the image above, whereas the stable (current) view is on the right.

If you don’t like this addition to your bookmarks bar, you can easily disable it. However, it does look like Google is about to add a whole heap of emphasis to the Apps and Extensions available in the Chrome Web Store. It looks like it will only be a matter of (a short amount of) time until this tweak comes across to ChromeOS as well.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
