Why Malware? What the Hell? Then why Lenovo have integrated it on their computers?

about Pokki and Chromium, Google Chrome, Prism Mar 2015

Well I think that this post is pretty old too, I tested pokki and it's really great, they try to integrate web-based app's to their store rapidly, well it's true that the Devis a little slow, they Have changed the "Pokki Start Menu button replacement", and on windows 7 it's now a Pinned app on the taskbar that open a second start menu-like wit hall pokki app's and the default start menu of windows, and on windows 8 it's a simple tile but with the same effects.

Leanovo have integrated this app in their computers, then some Windows8 computers have pokki integrated originally !

It's an interesting app, I search a way to use it to create my own web-based app's for pokki (more like converting a real website to pokki, it's what they do ^^), or find a good replacement for Mozilla Prism, or one on chromium that don't Behave like Google Chrome Website to Desktop app converter (it use the chromium agent, then a lot of ressources…)

Pokki is really interesting anyway!
