    Google releases Chrome Web Store

    Personally, I think its cool and loaded for the first day, but for some reason I cant get apps to work. They download but dont work (Ubuntu Chrome from the dev ppa). Overall thoughts on the store?


    Today, Google's launched the Chrome Web Store which allows you to buy webapps through a unified storefront. Google utilizes its checkout system to make transactions easy and, within the Chrome browser, webapp performance is fast. It's launching today and will be available this afternoon at chrome.google.com/webstore.
    Google brought in a few partners to demo a few apps. The New York Times will be launching a slick webapp that makes browsing articles and photos a much better experience. In an effort to highlight speed and performance—clearly the theme of today's Google event—Google demoed a few web games. While these games are pretty simple, they make use of high-definition graphics and work as well as their desktop counterparts. One particular game was Poppit, a balloon popping puzzle game, which will be embedded in Chrome 9. Many of these apps, such as those previously mentioned, will work even when you're offline.

    Some demoed apps will be available for purchase today when the Chrome Web Store launches later today, and others, such as Amazon's Kindle Webapp, will be available later on.

    It is interesting... Is this the "Chrome OS"?

    I had found a great game: "Kingdoms at War". Just search at the chrome web store. I'm already addicted to it.

    since the release I've got the apps to work but what im noticing is that the majority of the apps are just webpages.

    The apps will come in time, very easy to get your app listed. I know we will also see a lot of crap.
