How do you launch a chrome app if google is getting rid of the launcher??


https://www.theverge.com/2016/3/22/1...removed-google

I have several apps installed. I have to go to the chrome store, do a search for the name, then launch the app. How is this faster for me??

If I install an app, it will pop open a tab with my list of apps, so at least I can see what is installed.
Funny google got rid of it!
I found a chrome app to launch an app launcher, how silly!

IT works too.

while chromeos is technically linux, it is NOT gnu/linux, and this thread would be better asked on a (sub)forum dedicated to this particular os.
