When looking through my Chrome extensions list (
chrome://chrome/extensions/), I noticed that some of the apps I have installed have also installed themselves as extensions.
Here is the Google+ Webstore page:
It mounts its self as and app as you would expect on the "New Tab Page":
However, I noticed on the extensions page, it is there too:
The View Website link on the extensions page for Google+ just takes me to the store page and the extension installs and uninstalls with the app, leading me to believe that it is just part of the app.
What I want to know is, what do they do for the app? I was thinking it might be something like offline synchronisation, however Google+ does not have this feature as of yet to my knowledge.
Exactly the same issue happens with the app Scratchpad
