For celebrating the fifth birthday of Google's Chrome project, the search giant has today unveiled "For your desktop" Chrome Apps that work from the desktop. Initially this new generation of Chrome Apps is for Chromebooks and Windows, but Linux support is coming soon.

The new Chrome Apps support working offline, have a greater "application" feeling than just a Chrome web-browser page, supports Google Drive and other web services, and the apps can be launched directly from the desktop.

For those that want to learn more about the next-generation Google Chrome Apps, read this Google blog post. We'll cover the new Chrome Apps in more detail once they come to Linux and OS X; in that post they confirm it's "coming soon."
