And so it begins. I have long theorized about Google's merging Chrome and Android (in one form or another - can't ignore the bajilion or so app already in Play). While the writing has been on the wall for some time (http://goo.gl/DuZSzr, http://goo.gl/XRLuww, http://goo.gl/pYeO9u), this is the first direct and visible step.

I fully except Google to keep on going from here, not stoping until there is a full webstack (html/js/css) available to run apps on mobile with an experience and featureset on par with native apps.

Good news. Hope these web apps will soon be able to use some API to access some device hardware components (vibrator, NFC, gyroscope...). May be very interesting in several ways : games, identification, etc.
 
+Maxime MARAIS I believe that is exactly what is going to happen. Personally, push notifications and local storage are highest on my list, and local storage (of sorts) is probably already there.
 
Yes, +Moshe Brevda you already have access to local storage systems, depending on the usages:
AppCache or application cache.
FileSystem and File APIs (File, FileList, FileReader, Blob)
localStorage for storing simple key-value pairs
WebSQL for relational data (deprecated)
IndexedDB, a standard indexed data store

See https://developers.google.com/chrome/mobile/docs/overview for more details
