After launching a bookstore yesterday Google has today launched a Chrome Web Store which is a portal for web applications for both the Chrome browser and Chrome OS. Among those demonstrated were games, from EA, and magazines from leading publishers. Some applications can be used to control TV’s and other automated gear in the home.

The introduction of the store which is designed to rival offerings from Apple and Microsoft in the future allows users to buy an application and run it on a PC, tablet or other device. Many of the new apps are designed to work with Adobe Flash and while adhering to web standards they will work for all platforms.

Engadget who attended  the launch in San Francisco said that the applications shown included offerings from Amazon, the New York Times, NPR, Sports Illustrated and many games. Chrome 9 will come with EA’s Poppit already installed, and other EA games will come through the store. Many apps will be enhanced from their usual web versions and will sync their data with Chrome OS or any other version of Chrome.

Amazon showed a full version of Kindle for the Web, now given special treatment in the web store: the new version has a heavily visual browser that includes a Cover Flow-style book browser. All the reading settings, highlights and other details should carry over to the new app. The Kindle which is being sold into Australia by Amazon is priced at $139 and $189.

The Chrome Web Store will be available immediately with 500 titles and is designed for Chrome 8. Chrome 9 when it ships will have a prominent tab for the store and a streamlined way to pay for apps. Kindle for the Web adapted to the Web Store should arrive in early 2011 said Engadget.
