I created an app for a page (say reddit.com) that I visit often using the Chrome Save as Application shellScript. When I did so, I had two problems:

  1. The reddit.com icon was not the icon of my application. This was easily fixed by editing the application icon in Finder.app.
  2. The application's name on the menubar was Chrome and not Reddit (as seen in the screenshot), despite Reddit being the name I used while creating the app.

A little googling showed me how to change the menubar name of an MacOSX application, which tells me to edit the file InfoPlist.strings. However, applications created by Chrome don't have that file, and creating it doesn't help either.

I now have no clue what to do, which brings me to posting this question here: How may I change the menubar name of a Chrome-created application on MacOSX

Technical Details:

  • Mac OSX 10.7.5 (Lion)
  • Chrome Version 26.0.1410.43
