Google’s Web App Store

Not much on this, as Google’s Chrome Web App store will be discussed during the ongoing I/O conference.  But I’m intrigued by the concept.

Google Chrome users who find web apps in the store will be able to create convenient shortcuts in Chrome for easy access. Also, developers will have the option to easily sell their apps through the store using a convenient and secure payment system.

To give you a preview of what it means to prepare a web app for the store, we’ve published some preliminary documentation. We look forward to your feedback and sharing our progress with you openly as many of the technical details will likely change before we launch. To stay up-to-date, subscribe to our developer group and look for news on the Chromium blog.

  This strikes me as browser extensions on steroids, and I’m trying to figure out how this fits into their Android Market strategy.  Is this a precursor to the launch of their Chrome OS?
