    I have a Nexus 5 with KitKat. How do I add a homescreen shortcut to a website? I switched from an iphone and this was pretty easy but I can't figure it out on kitkat. I found a couple pre-kitkat examples showing how to do this, but they don't work for kitkat.

    if you happen to be using Chrome, go to the web site, then click the menu button and select "add to homescreen'

    I don't see that option in the Chrome menu. We probably have different versions. I tried the Widget > Bookmark method suggested and that worked.
