Progressive Web Apps will Replace Google Chrome Apps in 2018

Chrome for business isolates websites for added security

This removal by Google is only going to be affecting 1% of Google Chrome users, as it is stated in the Chromium Blog across Linux, Windows and Mac only 1% of users actually used Google Apps.

While Chrome arguably offered the best browser security model for many years, Microsoft has taken steps to catch up, especially with the recent introduction of WDAG (Windows Defender Application Guard) for its Edge browser, a technology that allows users to run the browser in a Hyper-V-based virtualized environment.

If you're wondering whether you'll miss out on much, don't worry: as Ars Technica noted, many Apps were essentially little more than bookmarks for webpages, with the added benefit of being able to access them from various parts of Chrome's interface.

In August 2016, Google had announced that the company would be shutting the apps section in the Chrome Web Store.

Honor V10: 6 top features of Huawei's OnePlus 5T rival
The new flagship is just as capable as the Huawei Mate 10 but for less money, and it's the most ambitious Honor smartphone so far. The phone also managed to maintain its composure with casual gaming, although we will reserve our verdict for the final review.

Google said, that the apps already installed in Chrome shall no longer functional by early 2018. Today's Chrome 63 rollout brings with it site isolation, Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.3 for Gmail, and granular settings for extensions.

With Chrome 63, Google has further strengthened its sandboxing with Site Isolation, a feature that forces every website to have its own dedicated rendering process. Extensions are also installed through the Chrome Web Store and usually live next to the address bar as buttons.

They'll be replaced by mid-2018 by the introduction of Progressive Web Apps for desktops. To combat the problem, the Chrome team recently launched Progressive Web Apps (PWAs). This move comes in the wake of the tech giant's push towards Progressive Web Apps. There's still no word on removing Chrome Apps from Chrome OS, though.
