    -- Google latest beta version of the Chrome web browser has a few new tricks up its sleeve, including an API that makes it easier to fill out payment details on websites, open links and websites directly into the supported web app, and allow web apps to access approved folders on your device.

    When you take all the updates in Chrome 31 beta together, it’s pretty clear that Google is continuing its mission to make the web browser the only app you really need, no matter what operating system you’re using.

    Google adds improved web app support to Chrome for Android | The Verge (click for full article)

    by Nathan Ingraham - Oct. 3, 2013

    Google's Chrome browser has always been a fairly forward-thinking product, but the team behind the Android version finally introduced a feature that iOS users have had since late 2007. In the new beta release of Chrome for Android, you can save any webpage you visit as a link on your homescreen. Even more notably, some of these links will open as full-screen web apps. Web developers will need to enable that functionality, so most sites won't support it right off the bat, but those that do will even get their own tab in Android's multitasking menu.
