Google's Chrome Web Store Launching Soon
Much of the discussion is focused on the Chrome 8 web browser, which is the mechanism with which Chrome Web Store apps will work. When users open up a new tab on the Chrome browser, an icon is already there to take them to the Chrome Store.
Initially it was thought that Google would be opening the Chrome Web Store in October, but the target is now in sight. The store will offer three types of apps: installable websites, themes and extensions.
