With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form—the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes—so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.

Even if you have minimal JavaScript experience, you can create powerful Google Chrome Apps with conventional HTML web technologies. This practical book shows you how to develop Chrome apps that behave like desktop applications, interact with hardware devices, access local storage, and send notifications.

Using HTML, CSS, and some JavaScript, you’ll learn how to build apps that run on any platform that supports the Google Chrome browser, including OS X, Windows, and Linux. This book is one of the first to help you write Chrome Apps and get them published in Google’s Chrome Web Store.

  • Build Chrome Apps, using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Use web networking technologies such as Ajax, sockets, notifications, and cloud messaging
  • Discover how to access web API functionality from a desktop app
  • Publish your apps in the Chrome Web Store
