in brief The Commonwealth Bank has become the first bank to put its online banking platform, NetBank, onto the Chrome App Store.

The web app is a carbon copy of the bank's HTML5-powered portal it showed off on Android and BlackBerry tablets mid-last year.
In its blog post announcing the new web app, CommBank told customers that the Chrome version of NetBank is customised to fit in with a user's other online services.
"Users can enjoy the added benefits of a more intuitive design, a quick launch access icon (so you don't have to type in the URL or find a bookmark), faster browsing and the ability to sync with other Google services," the bank wrote.
