Popout for Google Chrome is an extension that I created for the Google Chrome web browser. It’s extremely simple (one line of code) but it has been very useful for me. What Popout for Google Chrome does is turn a Google Chrome tab into a separate window minus all the chrome bits. This allows you to turn any webpage or app into a Chrome app that runs “outside the browser”. This works especially great for apps such as Kindle Cloud Reader, Skydrive, and Spotify. The idea was to make web apps appear as regular desktop applications but it has the added bonus of saving you more screen real-estate.

Anyways, there isn’t else much to talk about after all it’s only one line of code. This was my first Google Chrome App/Extension. Hopefully there will be more to come.
