Google axes the Chrome App Launcher

Google today said it would retire its Chrome App Launcher on Windows, OS X and Linux in July, citing user indifference.

“We’ve found that users on Windows, Mac, and Linux prefer to launch their apps from within Chrome,” said Marc Pawliger, a Chrome engineering director, in a short post to a company blog Wednesday.

“Beginning in a few weeks, Chrome will no longer enable the launcher when users first install a Chrome app,” Pawliger added. “Anyone who currently has the launcher will receive a notice informing them that the launcher will be going away. In July, existing instances of the launcher will be removed.”
