All about Google Chrome & Google Chrome OS

25 Oct 11 Chrome app store gets new look, ties reviews into Google+

To accompany the new stable version of the Chrome browser Tuesday, Google updated its Chrome App Store Apps with a new look and new interface.

The new App Store is marked by big images for the featured apps and extensions, that users need only to hover over to reveal a short review, user rating, and “add to Chrome” button. A left-hand navigation panel contains the store’s search feature, and lists of popular apps and extensions, collections, and categories.

Individual pages for apps and extensions have been updated as well with a tabbed interface that breaks the app up into Overview, details, and reviews. The reviews interface now links to a user’s real identity with their Google+ profile.

The new App Store and updated “new tab” screen in Chrome are meant to highlight Chrome’s functionalities beyond simple browsing, but as an experience in gaming, communications, and productivity.
