|The 3x3 grid icon (middle) is Google's,|
App Launcher. It replaces the black bar
previously utilized to jump between apps.
Sunday night (through a recommendation on Twitter) I found a cool little Chrome app that allows me to customize the App Launcher.
It is called the App Launcher Customizer for Google. While the name could be just a bit more creative, its functionality serves its name proudly! It does exactly what you would think it should -- customize the Google App Launcher. Of course, you have to be using the Chrome browser to utilize the app, but a quick install and you'll be off and running.
Once installed, you really can customize the Launcher to suit your needs.

|Notice that I have additional non-Google links|
available. Also, notice that it breaks the 3x3 grid model.
