My main reason to fork was that I'm using slate to switch apps and wasn't able to switch to a Chrome SSB. I then found out that the app (eg mine was called "Googlemail") was called "Googlemail" in OS X's app switcher, but in the Activity Monitor, the process was called "Google Chrome". Slate had only access to the process name to switch to the app, so I could only switch to "Google Chrome" but not to "Googlemail" which gets confusing when you've got both apps running simultaneously. With my last commit, the app now is called "Googlemail" and can be referenced by slate.

Furthermore, I sped up the retrieval of Google Chrome and avoided reconverting existing icns files.

Use spotlight to find chrome
This is much faster than finding in the Applications folder.
Link the chrome executable into the ssb
This way, we don't spawn a "Google Chrome" instance but an own app
instance that can be named via the settings in en.lproj. In the end, the
running app has the name specified upon creation, not "Google Chrome".
