Chrome Web Store goes worldwide, in-app purchases coming soon

The Chrome Web Store has made lots of headway since it's initial release -- Google took the time today to tell us all some stats behind the Web Store and the numbers are quite impressive to say the least. Developers are on board all the way and users have now downloaded 17 million apps.

Now, the next step -- Google announced they will be launching the Chrome Web Store in 41 different languages and making it totally available to all to all 160 million users of Chrome. Aside from all that, they are now working on in-app payments so that developers can better profit off of their apps and as such, they've also laid the groundwork for a developer relationship in which Google only requires 5% of the profits meaning, developers take the remaining 95% home. We like that idea, and we're pretty sure developers will as well.
