You'll probably also have Gmail, Google Drive and Youtube icons next to the Google Search icon. They are bookmark icons that are installed automatically when you install a newer version of Chrome. They're indeed not in /Applications but they are under your home directory. You can find/delete them in ${HOME}/Applications/Chrome Apps.localized


The "apps" come bundled with Chrome. These aren't actual apps, just links to Google services that are wrapped to look like a standard app (think of the as the OS equivalent of browser bookmarks to Google sites). You can safely delete them, but they will likely reappear should you re/install Chrome.


Install the extensions: Extensions Manager (aka Switcher) Removes one-click plug-ins :)
