Today I Learned

Use Chrome to make "desktop apps"

You can use Chrome to make slick desktop apps for your frequently used tabs, and even make aliases:

alias twitter="open -na 'Google Chrome' --args '--app=https://mobile.twitter.com'"

# replace #{UID} with the index of the google account you want to use
# if you are signed in to multiple accounts on your computer, otherwise 0 should be fine.
alias cal="open -na 'Google Chrome' --args '--app=https://calendar.google.com/calendar/b/#{UID}/r'"

# for fun
alias pm="open -na 'Google Chrome' --args '--app=https://packmanager.nulogy.net/'"
