Google Chrome Web Store

Posted on: February 27, 2011

A number of us in the office enjoy the delights of the iOS platform, mainly being the App Store. Not only has it given us the opportunity to fling grumpy avarian types but no doubt has helped us be more organised, more productive and certainly more (anti)social. It’s become a business model so successful that plenty of other software developers are directly copying it and tweaking it to their platforms.

For those that are already familiar with Chrome the browser, you will probably be aware of the various browser extensions available. Cool stuff and it seems like Google and its cohort of developers are spoiling us even more. Google has just publicly announced the arrival of Chrome Web Store. The store where you can download and install all kinds of custom extensions to the amazingly affectionate, Chrome. Like the App store, Android Market, Ovi store (alas, I have not tried Nokia’s offering yet!) you have to filter through the mass to find the extensions that are going to be useful to you. I quite like that process but if you don’t, take a look at some of the top ones I have already found:

NB: Links are Chrome web store links and you need a Google account to install any of the apps. Enjoy 🙂
