The Google Chrome Web Store, the browser based application marketplace that we have been anticipating for quite some time has now launched and is available to all Chrome browser users. In a blog post yesterday Google VP of Product Development Sundar Pichai had noted that the Web Store is currently available only in the United States. However, that only appears to be the case with paid apps as free applications can be accessible from anywhere.
The Chrome Web Store can be accessed from this link on any browser although you will need to access it from the Chrome browser in order to be able to download and install themes, applications and extensions. Applications are organized under a number of categories like Communication, Education, Entertainment, Family,etc. while Extensions are available under headers like Blogging, Fun, Shopping, Sports, etc.
The Chrome Web Store brings another new avenue for developers to build and sell applications from. If you are a developer, you can check out this article to learn how to build and submit your own apps to the Web Store.
