Chrome extingue instalação de app

Na data de ontem (06/12) a Google finalmente realizou o que já havia prometido, a remoção dos aplicativos desenvolvidos para o Google Chrome da loja Chrome Web Store. As extensões e os temas não sofreram qualquer alteração.

A empresa pretende substituir os aplicativos do Chrome por outro conceito: os aplicativos progressivos para a web (conhecidos pela sigla PWA), que nada mais são que sites com funções de apps, como notificações e algumas capacidades off-line, que podem ser "instalados" em um dispositivo. Usuários do Chrome OS vão continuar com os aplicativos pois eram os "únicos que aproveitavam", segundo a Google.

Aquele usuários que já possuem algum app instalado em seus navegadores, vão seguir com sua utilização normal, porém por tempo limitado, já que é previsto que em futuras atualizações do navegador as mesmas sejam removidas. Estas atualizações devem acontecer ainda no primeiro trimestre de 2018. A Apple ainda trabalha para implementar este suporte no Safari.

Para permitir uma transição mais perfeita dos aplicativos Chrome para a web, o Chrome não removerá completamente o suporte para aplicativos no Chrome para Windows, Mac ou Linux até que a instalação do PWA de Desktop esteja disponível em 2018.

Quem já tem o navegador instalado deve receber o Google Chrome v63.0.3239.84 automaticamente.
