I'm using Windows 7.
Follow Odo's instructions here:

2. Click on Chrome's hamburger menu (top right), select "Tools", click "Create application shortcuts"
3. Click "Create"

Now you have a desktop icon that opens the chat like a desktop app, and it won't be grouped with the browser in the taskbar.

In Steam, go to the Games menu (top of the client) and select "Add a Non-Steam Game to My Library" -> Browse -> Navigate to your desktop and select the Armor Critical Shortcut.

In your library, under the "games" category you should now have a game simply named "Google Chrome". Right click this entry and select properties.

If you'd like to change the icon, you can download this image: [Image: F7AGoOU.png]
and select it via the "Choose Icon..." option. Make sure to change the file type to 'All Files' or 'Image Files'

Change the first box to "Armor Critical"

My Target: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --app=http://armorcritical.com/chat/
Important: Change Start in to: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome"

Click "close".

Armor Critical should now be in your games library, select it and click play to launch AC:

Steam overlay working in webstart:

As of right now (for me), Steam status is reverting back to "online" instead of "In Non-Steam Game...", I'm trying to figure that one out. Edit: working now, but I didn't change anything to fix it.

Updated op to include that the Steam overlay works while in game.
