I currently use Google Chrome as my primary web browser, more or less, to be part of the continued development cycle of this browser and due to the fact, I just plain love it.
I did see recently, on other sites, information in regards to the Google Chrome Web Store and to be honest I set it aside in my mind, without investigating it further. I was also hearing about Google web apps and again, did not make the connection between Google Chrome and Google Web Apps until last night when I opened a new tab in Google Chrome . It was then I noticed an icon for theWeb Store. When I clicked on the Web Store icon that I soon realized how the Google Web Apps and Google Chrome Browser work together.
If you are a Google Chrome user, open up new tab, and click on the Web Store or click [ HERE ] .
The Chrome Web Store is an online marketplace where you can discover thousands of apps, extensions and themes for Google Chrome. To start exploring the store, visit chrome.google.com/webstore or click the store icon in Chrome’s New Tab page.
Once I was in the Web Store, I discovered there are many FREE (yes FREE) web apps being developed. What I was trying to figure out, was how did the web apps work with Google Chrome? The only way to find out was to install one. After completing the installation, I was on my way of looking for and installing others, and soon discovered, that following the installation of these apps, they were instantly accessible by opening up a new tab in Google Chrome.
I do believe these web apps are a glimpse of how applications are going to work in the upcoming Google Operating System.
Keep in mind, the Web Store is something new; therefore the selections of apps are limited at this time; HOWEVER, there are some FREE apps in the store worth installing. Here are BEST FREE APPS I have found worth installing at this time:
Linoit Web Sticky Service (account required with Linoit)
I am sure there are more apps to be found and I don’t want to spoil the fun (like hunting for Easter Eggs).
Call me a dummy, but I don’t know how I missed the Web Store and the Web Apps that are a direct connection to the Google Chrome Web Browser. Have to wonder how many other Google Chrome browser users have not put two and two together?
