Here's a post about how to create Chrome Application shortcut in OSX http://lifehacker.com/5611711/create-application-shortcuts-in-google-chrome-for-mac-with-a-shell-script

 

I created one such shortcut and put it in Applications folder. The application can be launched by Alfred normally but when this short cut is running, I cannot start Chrome through Alfred anymore.

 

Please improve to better support this feature. I'm not sure when this feature will come to Chrome for OS X but eventually it will. People won't be happy if Alfred cannot tell the difference between the application shortcut and Chrome itself.

Alfred doesn't do anything special or have special cases when launching apps, so if you are finding that e.g. Google Chrome isn't working properly after running this hack / script, then there is more likely something wrong with the way this script is using Google Chrome which is stopping Chrome from launching separately.

 

You might be better off not using this hack and instead, creating an Alfred workflow to show and launch your Google Chrome apps.
