Jul 3rd 2010 3:33PM It is not very functional on a Mac, as all it does is display as a pinned tab, however the instructions for setting it up (since it will improve down the road) are as follows:
- Open your /Applications folder, and right click on Chromium.app, then choose "Show Package Contents"
- Navigate to Contents/MacOS, and rename Chromium to Chromium-Exec
- Create a file called Chromium, with the contents (its two lines):
#!/bin/sh
exec /Applications/Chromium.app/Contents/MacOS/Chromium-Exec --enable-apps --apps-panel $@
- Open terminal and run chmod +x /Applications/Chromium.app/Contents/MacOS/Chromium
- Restart Chromium
- Navigate to Chromium.app/Contents/Versions/{Your Version}/Chromium Framework.framework/Resources in finder
- Open the extension manager, click "Developer Mode", and click "Load Unpacked Extension"
- Drag the folder of the app you want (eg. gmail_app) from finder into the open dialog of Chromium, click Open. Repeat until you've added all the apps you want
