Google Chrome browser gets update, may add Web store soon

Google's Chrome browser has got update to version 8. The company has announced Chrome's Stable release, 8.0.552.215.

The new version, in addition to over 800 bug fixes and stability improvements, now contains a built in PDF viewer that is secured in Chrome's sandbox. As always, Chrome 8 also contains latest security fixes.

Chrome 8 also adds built-in support for Chrome Web Store that will allow users to search free or paid Web apps. Similar to Google's Android marketplace and Apple's App Store, Chrome Web Store will also allow Chrome OS users to find, install, and potentially buy Web applications.

"The store's primary purpose is to help Google Chrome users find apps. It'll do this by supporting search, by providing browsable categories of apps, and by displaying lists of various kinds, both curated and auto-generated. User ratings and reviews will be used to rank apps," is how Google describes the Chrome Web Store on its Chrome Web Store developer pages.

According to CNET, Chrome Web Store may launch shortly.
