Personally, I’ve had little care for most Chrome apps other than the SSH client. Browser windows and tabs were the norm for my interaction prior to Android support. Most that I’ve installed on my Chromebooks were more about having a shortcut in the dock or a dedicated window than anything else really app like.
I look at the end of native client stuff with a small amount of sadness, since it was an intriguing idea. But today, you’d probably be screwing with Web Assembly or whoever passes for that since I last looked in on the subject.
