Yet more news come from the Google’s I/O 2011 keynote as company has just announced that the Chrome Web Store is now available to all the users worldwide in no less than 41 different language.
There is a catch though; they will be able to access the free applications only, at least for now.
In addition to that, Google has revealed that there have been more than 17 million app installations so far and with the new countries inclusion, these numbers will surely explode.
As for developers, instead of complicating things, the company will charge a flat 5% fee instead.
In today’s Google I/O keynote, it was revealed that Google Chrome now has 160 million active users. That’s twice as many users as reported last May (70 million)!
Furthermore, the company has promised major web browser improvements in the upcoming few months, such as: more developer APIs, speech support and more.
The latest Beta Channel build of Google Chrome (12.0.742.30 that is) has been released a couple of days ago and it’s worth checking out.

Remember the ad campaign for Google’s Chrome web browser titled “Dear Sophie“? The one that encourages using various search giant services?
Turns out, you can’t really do that. Why? Because it’s against Google’s TOS to create a Google account for children younger than 13 years old.
