Google makes Chrome, Web Store more app-friendly

Google has just announced some key changes made in its latest release of the Chrome web browser. They're largely meant to enhance the app experience, with a new tab page that is said to make it easier to access and organize apps in selected sections of the page. Adding apps is done by clicking the Chrome Web Store icon.

Once in the store, users can hover the mouse over an app and click Add to Chrome once the option comes up. The apps and extensions are represented by images on a wall that updates with every visit. Clicking on apps will allow learning more about them thanks to screenshots, videos and other information divided into separate tabs. There are also links to anonymous Google+ reviews for each app.

The benefits should be platform-neutral and will be particular helps to Chromebooks, where the Chrome Web Store is the main source of curated apps.
