Google is building the Chrome web store to compete with Apple’s soaring 200,000 plus app store. It was unveiled today at the Google I/O developer conference in San Francisco.
According to VentureBeat the Web store will be based on standard web technologies like HTML5 and Adobe’s Flash (a turf war on standards Apple should not be in). The Chrome web store will be limited to users of the Chrome OS, browsers, and Chrome enabled devices. It sounds timely to me as I’m about ready to take the Droid HTC: Incredible for a spin next week and will do a full review once I give it the full test drive. I’ll be sure to give the Chrome web store a whole shake down as well.
Take a look at the 3rd annual Google I|O below:
