After months of development, the Chrome Web Store – a complete browser based store that offers web apps is now available. Apps from different categories would be present in the store and would work in Chrome as well as Chrome OS.

At a conference today, Google showed off some really amazing web apps including NYTimes, NPR, breath-taking games from EA and Amazon’s Windowshop app. The store appears similar to the iTunes Store, but is web-based which makes a huge difference. Amazon would also be releasing a new Kindle Web App next year that would allow Kindle users to read books in their browser.

Google will be rolling out the Chrome Web Store to Chrome users later today and it will be accessible via https://chrome.google.com/webstore.
