Google announced the preview of upcoming Web Store and there is a few changes to the developer dashboard.


  • You can now select up to 3 predefined categories and with some customized.
  • The terribly extremely limited character length of 2,000 has been lifted to 16,000. But still no markup, you can't highlight or link your words to other place.
  • You can select a verified site from your Google Webmaster Tools account, it will show users that this extension is published from the site you set instead of your developer display name.


  • In preview, it shows the extention is free but nothing yet for normal page. Obviously, we can set a price when Web Store is ready.


Your extension now needs logo and at least one screenshot in order to publish, I have to create them for my silly extension.
