Chrome Web Store Goes International

After a solid run in the US for the past several months, Google has finally opened up access to the Chrome Web Store. Now users in 24 other countries can enjoy access to Web apps and extensions to make their computing experience more fun and productive.

Among the new countries participating in the recent Chrome Web Store launch are: Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

Developers in India have already embraced the myriad of possibilities and have released Saavn for users to listen to their favorite Indian music. Cricket fans can get the latest news from the ESPN Cricinfo and even have some fun playing with the TurboCricket app.

Now that the massive international expansion for the Chrome Web Store has been achieved, might we expect that Google is getting ready to reward eager Chromebook fans worldwide with a significant Chromebook launch across an additional dozen or so markets?
