Google currently has two operating systems: Chrome OS for notebooks and desktops and Android for phones and tablets. But the lines are kind of blurry since you can run the Chrome web browser on most Android devices.
What I’d really like to see is support for Chrome extensions and plugins on Android devices — but it looks like Google is taking another approach toward bringing Chrome apps to mobile devices.
TNW reports Google is building a toolkit to help Chrome packaged app developers port their apps to run on Android and iOS devices.
The finished apps won’t run in the browser the way they do when you’re using Chrome on a desktop or laptop machine. Instead, developers will be able to distribute the apps as standalone programs in the App Store or Google Play Store.
The upshot is that developers will be able to create apps that can run on phones, tablets, notebooks, desktops, or anything in between.
