Chrome Web Store

Chrome Web StoreChrome Web Store:Today at the conference Google I / O in San Francisco, Google showed a preview of a new product: the Chrome Web Store. Yes, this is a shop for the web.

As you can see in the pictures, large icons are all Web applications. This is where you choose applications that reside in the store. In-store, you will see a complete gallery of these icons (very similar to the gallery Chrome Extension or Theme Gallery Chrome.) You can see the ratings of the applications, as well as comments. Perhaps most important, developers can charge for these applications.

“Developers are concerned about monetization. But they need more than advertising,” said Google VP Sundar Pichai product on stage. Web Store With Chrome, Google has simplified the buying process in Web applications. Once you access your Google Account applications are just a click away (presumably to use Google Checkout). From there you can say, buy plants and Zombies, the game very popular in Apple’s App Store. But it all works on the web in Chrome, thanks to Flash. You can run the game in full screen too.

Another game is Lego Star Wars. This game is implemented through the use of native client Chrome (which developers can use to develop native code for the Web). This is a full 3D game, built using the API of HTML5 rich.

Applications will also be in this store around content. This means that the magazines and periodicals has been to the store – and they will be able to charge for them. Sports Illustrated web application showed on stage.

As a price example, Google showed that MugTug dark room (see picture) will be $ 4.99.

But this exciting new store comes with another cost: you must be using Chrome to use the shops. It will be built in the Chrome browser starting soon – and yes, OS is that when Chrome launches later this year. However, these web applications will be able to work in other browser, Google says. It’s just that you have to go through the webshop Chrome, apparently.

This store just made Chrome OS much more interesting – to developers and users. Google is trying to bring the currently popular idea of buying the application of a single click and translated it to the web. This is a direct shot at both Apple and Microsoft.

Here’s more information from Google:

Are the applications on the Web Store Chrome different from other web applications?

No web applications contained in the Web Chrome Shop are normal web applications are built with standard web tools and technologies. The same web applications to be implemented in other modern browsers that support these technologies.
What is the advantage of “install” an application of Chrome Web Store?

When users of Google Chrome “install” a web application from the store, a convenient shortcut is added for quick access to the application. Web apps can also apply for permits advanced HTML5. For more information, read the preliminary documentation on the installable web applications in Chrome.
How I can add my web application to the store?

Let’s invite the developers to start adding your web applications at the end of this year before the Web Chrome Shop open. To learn how to prepare your web application to store, read our documentation on the project and join our discussion group of developers.
