Google is killing Chrome Apps for desktops, for good

Chrome 63 Now Available for Android Linux Mac and Windows What's New

More than a year after the announcement, Google Chrome is finally pulling the plug on its "Apps" section from the Chrome Web Store on Mac, Windows, and Linux platforms.

Starting today you will not be able to find apps section on your chrome browser for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Breast cancer risk remains in newer hormone contraceptives
Most breast cancers are fueled by estrogen. "The range of risks we're talking about here is much much smaller", she said. Other studies had shown about the same breast cancer risk for older versions of birth control pills .

The removal of apps from the Chrome Web Store was actually first announced by Google back in August 2016. There's still no word on removing Chrome Apps from Chrome OS, though. Hosted apps function mostly like webpage bookmarks which could be conveniently pinned across parts of the user interface.

If it sounds complicated, you can check out the Google Support documentation which takes you through setting up and using Chrome Remote Desktop on your Windows, Mac or Linux PC or Chromebook. Google sees PWAs as the future, thanks to their superior offline capabilities, efficiency, and uniformity across platforms, but they're functionally similar to Chrome Apps, which are somewhat unintuitive by comparison.

Amazon's 'Transparent' hasn't cut ties with Jeffrey Tambor yet
Publicist Allan Mayer offered a more extensive explanation in the wake of more accusations from makeu partist Tamara Delbridge. The fifth season of Transparent hangs in the balance as the writers await the results of Amazon's investigation.

Another great thing about Progressive Web Apps is that it's not exclusive to Google's Chrome web browser because it uses all existing W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) standards. Google expects that PWAs will be available on desktops come mid-2018.

To allow your PC to be accessed, you'll need to install the Chrome Remote Desktop extension from the Chrome Web Store. Developers can continue to build Chrome apps (or Android apps) for Chrome OS. PWAs already work on Samsung's own web browser on its Android smartphones and Android versions of Firefox and Opera.

Max Hospital case: Baby dies, father refuses to take body
While we understand that survival in extreme preterm births is rare, it is always painful for the parents and family. Delhi police said they had collected hospital records for the mother and treatment records for the newborn babies.

Google wants to throw yet another app type into the mix, though. Microsoft already announced that it's bringing PWAs to Windows 10, while Apple is in early stages to bring it to the Safari web browser. By early 2018, Chrome apps will be rendered unusable and instead be replaced by recently-launched Progressive Web Apps (PWA) that rolled out on Android in February this year.
