By enabling the experimental chrome://flags/#enable-streamlined-hosted-apps flag in the last Chromium build, you can now easily create Chrome (Hosted) Apps from your favorite websites.

It is really simple, go to your favorite website, open the ≡ Chrome menu, select "Tools" and click on "Create app from this website...". Here you go! The Chrome App Launcher pops up with the brand new App you've just created with the shiniest favicon.

From there, the App will open by default in a new Window - you can still change it afterwards to open in a Tab if you prefer.
