    Chrome Apps is less dependent on the network. When a client installs an application, they have full control over the application’s lifecycle. Applications open and close rapidly, and the system can close applications down at whenever to enhance execution. Clients can completely uninstall applications.

    We’d like to politely submit http://rebump.cc for consideration as well. This simple extension we are building makes sure important emails get answered by bumping them back to the inbox.

    Don’t mean to be spammy. But would truly love feedback. Thanks!
