Chrome Dev 6.0.472.0 with Chrome Web Store release

Google Chrome releases updates to different release channels. This developer preview channel ( Dev channel )is where ideas get tested (and sometimes fail). The Dev channel can be very unstable at times, and new features usually require some manual configuration to be enabled. Still, simply using Dev channel releases is an easy (practically zero-effort) way for anyone to help improve Google Chrome.

The Dev channel has been updated to 6.0.472.0 for Windows, Chrome Frame, and Linux. A Mac release will follow soon.This version come with Chrome Web Store( –enable-apps ) which is first announced by Google at the Google I/O conference in San Francisco on Wednesday.

Chrome Web Store

The Chrome Web Store is Google’s forthcoming one-stop shop for Web-based apps, both free and paid.Web apps listed in the Chrome Web Store are regular web applications, built with standard web tools, they can be used by anyone using a modern browser that supports these web technologies.However  users accessing the Chrome Web Store through Google Chrome will have the ability to create convenient shortcuts for easily accessing their apps.
