Install FrogOS App

Recommended Posts

A little while back I noticed a new feature in Chrome:install app.jpg

Some websites, (including Frog) are setup as Progressive Web Apps (PWAs).  If you choose this function, Chrome will create and install on your computer a browser app called Frog OS, with no address bar, separate shortcut on the toolbar.

It's searchable in Windows' Start Menu too:

Any external links will open in a regular browser and it behaves like a regular browser, but with most features missing.  In short, it's treating the platform like a standalone program.

Has anyone else tried this out?  Can you see a use for this?
