The Chrome Web Store was shown off at the Google I/O keynote (streaming live) today along with the other great news of open codecs, great new tools, and more.
I found myself torn about this one. For one, it seems tied into Chrome itself. The problem that Sundar stated (developers needing a good channel; users having a hard time finding things) is valid for the entire Web. We don’t need a Firefox Web Store, IE Web Store, etc etc etc. We have an opportunity to do better here.
That being said, it was great to see the early stages here and how they give developers the ability to place your Web application in to an experience where you can put a price tag on top.
I would love to get details here. How do you package the application? Do you have to upload the package to the store?
I wonder if there is room for a distributed system that allows me to put a price tag on my web application, but keep it at my URL.
What do you think? There is a session on the store… so I look forward to the deets!
