Google is planning to open an app store for its Chrome browser to make it easier both for users to discover Web applications and for developers to reach a large potential audience. Chrome users who find apps in the Chrome Web Store will be able to create shortcuts in Chrome for easy access, Google said.
At the time of writing, the top paid app on the Chrome Web Store has 65 weekly installs. The top game fares a little better, with a few hundred weekly installs. After months of hype from Google and a delayed launch, those figures seem a little -- how can I say this -- weak?
The fact is, paid-for Web apps might be taking things just a little too far.
Just updated to 4.1 Jellybean and now Chrome will not display any flash content (used to on 4.0). BUT, If I use the built in 'Browser', it DOES display flash content, so obviously flash player still works.
Is this a google thing? I wouldn't have thought so, as I'd expect them to nobble it on the internal browser too, but you never know.
A new update to the Chrome Web Store was recently launched, now showing links to extensions and apps that will also work on Android. The store will have a link that says “Available for Android,” allowing users to link directly to the Google Play Store.
The links are currently only one way, and links to the Chrome Web Store from Google Play are not yet shown.
This week at their developers' conference, Google announced the new Chrome web store. The web store will deliver browser-installable applications, thus further blurring the line between browser and operating system.
I bought the galaxy note today and
google chrome and gmail isn't listed under "apps"
the only way im able to open them is by going to google play store and hit "open".
I want to put chrome in the dock area as my default browser, but its not in my apps section.
