Google is building a Chrome-based development environment, code-named Spark. The IDE would function as a Chrome app on a Chromebook and would enable developers to build apps for Chrome faster and easier than they can currently.
We’ve been astounded how far the web has come, Google engineering director Erik Kay said in a blog post. And promptly unveiled a entirely new class of Chrome apps that are designed for your desktop, not the web.
Just ahead of Google I/O, “magic” movie editing application Magisto has announced it is one of the first apps to launch on Google Chrome’s packaged app platform.
While Google has provided several Chrome browser apps to show off what it’s capable of, its latest app could be the best yet.
