    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.

    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.
