    but it leaves a chrome icon on your desktop not the icon of the website eg blogger icon. How to get that??

    It does work in Chrome for MAC – just figured out how…. You save the shortcut in one of your bookmarks folder. Then open the bookmarks folder and drag and drop to the desktop from there!
