This feature that only Chrome has, is the only reason I don’t Change my Browser

Google Chrome has completely taken over the throne to the most used browser worldwide, though not precisely for lack of competition or worthwhile alternatives. Firefox is experiencing one of its best stages, finally with the arrival of multiprocess. Opera is becoming more interesting and presents unique features, such as integrated messaging services.

And, they are not the only ones. New alternatives like Safari demonstrate that there is still much to innovate in the field of browsers. And yet, many of us, knowing this we stay in Chrome despite its inordinate consumption of resources that Google continues to promise to solve, but we get old waiting for it to happen.

One of the Best Chrome features few people take advantage of

Personally, the only reason I’m currently using Chrome as my primary browser is for this one thing. That is adding web applications and pages to the desktop and opening them as separate windows. This way you can add any webapp to the desktop or to the taskbar as if they were individual apps.

These windows have their own icon that you can change by the one that you like best. You can run the apps in their own window, without address bar, buttons, extensions, or bookmarks.

It is especially useful not to clutter Chrome tabs and have to wade through all the pile we open to find the ones we need to keep open all the time.

You can do it with any Chrome application that appears on chrome://apps/. You can do it with any webapp that you have open at that moment in a tab, or you can do it with any web page. You could create your own “Alltop9 webapp” if you wanted to. Add it to the Windows desktop or taskbar, and if you use Linux, you can anchor it in your dock.

This feature, unfortunately, does not exist in any of the other modern web browsers like Firefox, Opera, Safari, or even Edge, although several are based on Chrome.

If we consider that some hidden “native” applications such as Slack or Spotify are full instances of Chrome thanks to the widespread use of Electron, it is even stupid to install such apps if you already use Chrome and you will have the same high consumption of Resources in your system.

In addition to this, with the domain of web technologies, less and fewer services are dedicated to creating native applications for all systems, and we have to resort to web apps always.

In my case it happens to me with Asana, Trello and Tweetdeck, to mention the most important ones. With this feature of Chrome I believe the “illusion” that I have independent apps, and not only that, I can manage their windows separately, outside the disaster of tabs that I must open daily. This is just Awesome, isn’t it?
