Chrome OS now lets you dock small apps on the side

Chrome OS app docking

Chrome OS just became much more useful for multitaskers. Google has updated the web-centric platform with support for docking smaller apps along the screen edge, à la Windows 8; you can now keep a Hangouts chat or shopping list in view without having to carefully resize windows or switch tabs. If you're the sort who wants to always have information close at hand, you just have to restart your Chrome hardware to try the app snapping feature for yourself.
