Google upbeat on Chrome Web Store
KUALA LUMPUR: Google Malaysia is upbeat on a higher rate web browser adoption via localised web store with its newly-launched Chrome Web Store (CWS).
Country manager Sajith Sivanandan said Google Chrome is the number one web browser in Malaysia, thus by rolling out the CWS, it will be vastly more useful to Malaysians.
The new version of Chrome is launched every six weeks, he added.
CWS is an open marketplace that gives users an easy place to browse, discover and purchase the best applications (apps) on the web.
For developers, it gives them a dedicated place to showcase their web applications.
CWS includes several apps designed especially for Malaysians, created by local developers.
"It's about making sure that Malaysian users can get access to apps much more easily ... Local companies can build this apps and roll it out very quickly.
"For Malaysian developers, the launch of the CWS means they will be able to build and distribute their apps to the more than 200 million people around the world who are already using Chrome," Sajith said.
There will be more apps available online when more Malaysian developers come on board.
"We are really looking forward to more local users joining the CWS and adding to its content and making it a true Malaysian 'pasar malam' of apps," he said.
Apps that are available on CWS include Maybank, AirAsia and Amanz.my.
