I rarely talk about "breaking news" in the world of technology, but I can't help but share my excitement for the Chrome Web Store that launched today. If you know me, you know I am obsessed with web apps. I download and try them all, to the extent that I believe I might spend more time downloading and testing productivity apps than I actually do being productive. Oh the irony.
I made the leap to Chrome from Firefox a few months back and even though the shift was hard at first–having to find new toolbar apps to replace/replicate my old ones in Firefox and get accustomed to new features–I quickly saw my browsing experience and productivity improve. Chrome is faster, cleaner and has a few key features that I now could not imagine browsing without. Chrome is one example of why I love taking the time to test new platforms, apps and services. Every now and again, you discover a new tool that improves your workflow and changes your habits for the better.
I've spent the last hour in the Chrome store, and I already feel like a shopaholic. I find a new useful app and I just have to go back for another. I have a problem.
