Google Chrome Update Focuses on Enterprise Security

Enlarge  The Chrome Web Store

Hosted apps were basically glorified bookmarks, which makes little sense on a real desktop OS but gave Chrome OS users a way to pin important webpages to certain parts of the UI. It looks like Google has come up with a solution to resolve this issue.

Google told developers via email the Chrome team is working to enable Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) that can be installed on the desktop. Right now, this app is in the beta version but it is available for download. However, over the coming months, the company plans to add a policy that will allow corporate administrators to bypass this restriction if it breaks compatibility with the security applications they use.

The web giant revealed in 2016 that it planned to phase out Chrome Apps in 2018. It is one of the few Chrome apps those have achieved multi-platform success and closure of apps on the Chrome Web Store that will not deter the usability. Google's aim implementing this new feature is to keep websites open in different tabs separate from one another to limit the damage from web attacks. You can login to the website and access your remote devices like you normally would on the app. You can visit the website and access other remote devices on the app. The will provide you with remote access from anywhere in the world only with your login credentials.

Are web apps better than native apps?

Google has officially removed desktop Chrome Apps from the Chrome Web Store, the only features that are left are the option of theme customization and Extensions. PWAs aren't exactly a "standard" but are a catch-all phrase for a combination of existing W3C standards like a Web app manifest for app icons and service workers for push notifications and background updates.
