Application Shortcuts in Google Chrome – Awesome!

I use Google Chrome as my primary browser in Windows (it is blazingly fast and minimal). (I use Safari on my Mac’s) .. one awesome thing I have started to utilize is Application Shortcuts in Windows 7 and pinning them to the taskbar..

Which are apps and which are just browser app shortcuts? Pretty sweet. I set up Google Apps (Gmail), Reader and Unfuddle as my shortcuts and I love the one window no hassle that comes along with it, allows you to focus on the app instead of the browser/tabs. Pretty nice feature.

Having recently bought my first Mac I gave Safari about a month before ditching it and using Chrome on my Mac as well as my PC. Chrome just seems simpler, quicker and everything is more to hand (searching in the address bar, bookmarks easier to navigate, etc…)Am I missing something which would make Safari the leader again?
