Browser is the application on our computer where we spend most of our time. Now a days, browsers are much faster and improved, as we have HTML5, CSS3 etc. So we can run nice application or graphics without any issue.By keeping these things in mind, Google Chrome team released Chrome Web Store in Chrome event happened on Dec 7, 2010 at San Francisco. There were announcements, updates and demo about Chrome OS (operating system for notebook) as well, but apart from that, they unveiled Chrome Web Store.
Chrome Web Store is a place where you can find lot many web applications combined and collected at single platform in an organized manner. You can take a look at them and install as per your need. These apps get installed on your Chrome browser and from there you can run those apps. There are some free as well as paid apps available in Chrome Web Store. For paid apps, you need to pay thru Google Checkout.
I tried some apps like TweetDeck, NYTimes, Todo.ly,Weather Underground, Quick Note and many more and these apps are really awesome. I also tried some games like Google Pacman on Web Store. There are some paid but interesting games available on Chrome Web Store. The most important thing is that, apps are categorized and kept in an organized format. So it is easier to look for alike apps and install them on the browser.
Chrome Web Store is definitely a good platform for user as well as developer. Here developers can upload their application and even monetize from that. If the application is really good, they can go for paid option as well. Developer will get very good exposure thru this kind of portal. And for users, Chrome Web Store is definitely a great place to pickup good apps for their fastest browser i.e. Chrome.
