All that really means is Google is creating a place where you can buy or download apps that are trusted and have been checked. And if you access them via the Chrome web browser you will probably ...

On Windows I just encrypt in VisualGPG and then copy/paste into Gmail (plaintext e-mail, of course). Not that convenient, but no too much of a hassle either, considering how often I actually use GnuPG. Edit: and on Mac, GPGTools seems quite comprehensive.

As it works for me with the same list of labs and Chromium 13.0.782.215 and you said you're using the same version, I suspect it'd either be something else in your GMail settings (which you ruled out when the Incognito Window didn't exhibit the problem) or something in your Chrome profile. I can see three potential sources for the problem on the client ...

In many cases, installable web apps are just bookmarks. In Google Chrome they are called hosted apps.
