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 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.
