Splashscreens are a device-only item. As such they will not function in a regular browser.

thanks, i found this really strange.

Splashscreens are handled by Cordova as part of the native application UX. If you pull up your Chrome dev tools, you will also see a warning about the Status bar plugin.

Most Cordova plugins will NOT work in the browser, so you need to be aware of that fact. That is one reason I wrote the Ionic Native Mocks library.
