    What would you propose such a Chrome app to do?

    Its just a bookmark like extension ... just a fancy way to locate to PF instead of old boring bookmark. And it might also get some publicity ...

    If this is done, I think the bookmark should have an enlarged version of the PF favicon here as the logo.

    I dont think it will be done. Greg dont look interested
    And i didn't use PF Favicon because i) its boring ii) Its low resolution, finding matching font would take time. The file in zip quite matches it

    It has to be lores, as favicons have to be small. And I doubt it is a font, my bet is both letters were just drawn pixel by pixel.

    I don't see the point of a Chrome app.

    It would just be for convenience and publicity, just like the Netflix webapp. Users would be able to access the forum just by clicking a big PF logo on their browser.
