Chrome OS improvement shows app permissions and other info

The Chrome OS(s goog) app launcher is learning a new trick: It can display more details about an app with a simple right-click. You’ll see the app version, a way to create an app shortcut and even the permissions granted to the app. That’s handy because once you install an app you rarely think again about what the app can or can’t do.

We discus the new feature, currently found in Chromium, on this week’s Chrome Show podcast. Also part of the discussion are the latest Samsung Chromebook 2 reviews — each telling a very different story — news about the HP(s hpq)┬áChromebox and our recommended extension of the week.
