We can now install and run Progressive Web Apps like native apps in Chrome OS Canary channel 🐣. These apps work offline, have their own custom window, launch icon added to the shelf, and integrate well in the overview menu.

Try it now today: click the new "Install" browser menu, and enjoy the ride with https://mobile.twitter.com, http://open.spotify.com/, https://guitar-tuner.appspot.com/ and https://www.pokedex.org/. Note that this menu will be replaced by a plain "Create shortcut' menu if PWA requirements (fast, engaging, reliable) are not met.

You can learn more about PWA at https://developers.google.com/web/progressive-web-apps/ and the desktop support experiment at https://medium.com/@kennethrohde/progressive-web-apps-coming-to-all-chrome-platforms-80e31272e2a8
