In Chrome (for Mac), you can turn any website into a standalone web application (a.k.a. Site Specific Browser) by going to the site, clicking the three stacked dots in the upper-right of the window, and then selecting Create Shortcut from the More Tools menu:

create shortcut

This is super handy for making a standalone web mail client or web calendar… which is exactly what I'm trying to do. I've made a shortcut app of Outlook Mail from this URL:
