Launch Google Chrome Web Apps from your context menu

Google Chrome's right-click context menu is a very handy place to have access to add-on functionality. From element blocking in AdBlock to creating short URLs for the pages you browse, there are tons of extensions which offer two-click access this way.

One handy new context menu extension is Apps list, which (you guessed it) displays your installed Chrome Web Apps and lets you launch them without calling up the new tab page. Your apps are listed in alphabetical order, and you can choose to add a disabled apps shortcut -- which zips you to chrome://extensions and focuses on disabled items. It would be nice if the page filtered only disabled apps and extensions, but that's a limitation in Chrome -- not this extension.

Apps list also provides shortcuts to manage your extensions and jump to the Chrome Web Store. If you don't want to clutter your browser actions area with one of the app launchers we posted previously for Chrome, Apps list might be just what you're looking for.
