So I'm back at the hobby/business of making games, though I'm a little rusty. This is some background info on why this suggestion is needed.
Contruct 2 creates the the legacy version of the chrome packaged app. So I decided to force my game to be a *new chrome app by changing the manifest and adding a background script. I put these links in the dropbox.
Dropbox to manifest and main js
Now when running test on my games it loads up as New chrome app in its own process and runs i think at its best.

1. WebStorage plugin needs a property option to change the storage engine from LocalStorage to chrome.storage.sync or this could be done automatically by the exporter when choosing chrome Web store. This will benefit games greatly because data from games will be synced from device to device, not to mention all the other benefits of being a New Packaged App. Then Construct 2 should create New packaged apps for the chrome web store not legacy ones.
