    Hmmm... I can't get any of the apps from this forum to install as apps. They show in my extensions page, but never show up as apps.
    And yes, I have apps enabled. I have three or four other webapps I downloaded and installed that work perfectly fine. It only seems to be an issue with the ones from this forum. Is something missing in the manifest to make it a webapp?

    Just had a look, it seems the code has changed in a while. They were last worked in in May/June. So this must have updated, I am working on a few new one's so... hopefully it should work.
    Chrome and Chromium FTW!

    There has been an update to the format for webapp's manifest.json in July. Old webapps will not work. For details, see:

    Also, I'm not sure whether website origin verification for webapps is now enforced or not.

    I don't believe this is the issue, I have installed several that were downloaded from different webpages. I do know that they won't install directly. You have to save them to disk first, then drag them into a Chrome window.

    Is there a way to unpack these so I can make the adjustments myself? I'm sure I could edit them, I've just not been able to see how to open them.

    @StevePaul hmmm... I'm not sure where they were at. I found them the same way I found these, through Googling. Sorry, if I find anymore links I can post some for you.

    guardian: I think .crx files are simply renamed .zip files, so extracting them with something like 7-zip should do the job I think.

    That's what I thought too, SifJar, but none of the ones downloaded from here will open in zip. They all say invalid archive.
