Google adds, “Web apps listed in the Chrome Web Store are regular web applications that are built with standard web tools and technologies. The same web applications will run in other modern browsers that support these technologies.” If Google moderates the directory, perhaps these apps could be a safer environment than the web at large, though on the other hand, apps may also request special extended permissions, which might mean less security. If such a directory takes off and would become the de facto way for developers to distribute web software (not to say that’s likely, just hypothetically speaking), it would mean incredible control for the app directory moderator... Google.
The site will be available to users “later this year”, Google promises.
