Chrome is growing more popular with Mac users every day it seems, and Google has taken notice. The company has just announced that the Chrome App Launcher will be coming to Chromium for OSX. The launcher provides a simple way to launch Chrome "packaged apps", which are web apps that behave like conventional PC or Mac apps.

Chrome's Happiness Evangelist (yes, that is his real title) posted the following on his blog:

 

Chrome Team is currently working on bringing the App Launcher on the Mac platform as you can see in the screenshot below.

 

You can already give it a try by running the last chromium build available at download-chromium.appspot.com with the -show-app-list switch.
