Google Launching All New Packaged Apps

Google are introducing a new kind of web app that they are calling ‘Packaged Apps’. Rather than trying to explain what a packaged app is myself, I’ll let Google explain:

[quote]Packaged apps deliver an experience as capable as a native app, but as safe as a web page. Just like web apps, packaged apps are written in HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS. But packaged apps look and behave like native apps, and they have native-like capabilities that are much more powerful than those available to web apps.[/quote]

So basically, a packaged app is a web app but taken to the next level.  They work offline by default and are a lot more than just a browser window with the toolbars and menus hidden. The brilliant thing about these new packaged apps is that Google are releasing an API, allowing developers to come up with all sorts of brilliant packaged apps. If you want to find out more, head over to the Google Developer portal.

Personally, I think this will take the likes of Chrome OS on to the next level. Oh, did I also mention that these bad boys will work with Linux too, so us super geeks won’t miss out! I can’t wait but what do you think?
