Today at I/O 2010, Google announced the Chrome web store for apps. To debut later in the year at an unspecified time, the Chrome web store will allow users to install web-based applications that will run in native code such as Flash. Some of the applications featured in live demos included Dark Room, Plants vs. Zombies (it looked awesome), and Lego Star Wars. Google also announced it will be brining magazines to the Chrome web store. Sports Illustrated was on stage and showed off a pretty slick looking example which included slideshows, videos, live scores and more. Feature-rich advertisements were also shown off.
