Let me ask you something before we discuss this news. What is Chrome OS? A browser, and then you get access to Web Apps (most of the times just websites) and Google Web Apps come pre-installed.
Google recently pushed an updated Google Search App for iOS. There is an “Applications” icon on the homepage of this app which opens up a menu similar to Chrome OS Apps. Here is the screenshot.
Now, this is not Chrome OS for iOS, but, it is pretty much the same concept and motive right? Â to get more people on the web through Google and make them use web apps as a replacement for local apps.
This menu is still just the good old “glorified bookmarks” style but, that’s how it is on Chrome OS too right? Here is how Google introduced this Â “Applications” menu in their blog post. “Weâ€™ve also made it easier to find and use your favorite Google services like Google News, Calendar and more in the new Apps menu. Tap on an icon to quickly read an email in Gmail, or share a post on Google+ within the slide-in pane”
So, did Google sneak in Chrome OS in to your iPad?
