Moments ago, at a planned media event, Google gave users a peak into the future of the Chrome web browser and provided further details on the Chrome Web Store.
From there, the conversation shifted to Google’s Chrome Web Store. According to Google, the Chrome Web Store is aimed at discovery. Filled with both applications and games, the Web Store will allow users to easily browse, research, and purchase apps that provide added utility and functionality to the web experience. The store will allow developers to offer trials of their paid applications and all payments will be handled by Google Checkout. NPR, the New York Times, Amazon, and EA Games all had applications demoed at today’s event.
