A tool to help you test and publish your Android Apps to Chrome OS using the App Runtime for Chrome (beta), ARC.
See https://developer.chrome.com/apps/getstarted_arc for more detailed instructions.

Note: If you do not have any ARC Apps, installing ARC Welder will automatically download and install ARC, a large one time download.

Why do I love this extension:
Aquamail being my favorite Android App because among other things it support multiple email accounts at the same time and aggregates the incoming emails of all those accounts into a single virtual inbox (Smart Folder), Arc Welder allows me to run AquaMail on my desktop. As a picture is worth a thousand words, a screen shot will give you a better idea of what I'm trying to convey.

While Arc Welder may not be able to properly run all the Android Apps, I believe that most Apps which don't need access to the Android file system will work fine.
