"The BEAM web app is absolutely beautiful."
BEAM has been optimized to be a Chrome web app. This is a feature that's been around for some time that makes it easy to create a web app from the sites you use. And while Chrome can turn any web site you use into what appears like an application, optimizing a site for this functionality is not an easy task.
BEAM is fully optimized to operate as a standalone web app and the BEAM logo is stunning on the taskbar. All you have to do is click on the logo and the BEAM site will open in its own window, minus all the typical browser features (no toolbars, bookmarks, or address bars… just the app window).
If you're one of the "lucky 500" in the BEAM closed beta, use Chrome to access your BEAM dashboard and click "Install BEAM" on the right side of the address bar. Make sure to allow the beautiful minimalist logo / icon on your taskbar.
