Chrome Web Store Update: Enhanced Item Validation

One of the driving principles of the Chrome browser and platform is security. We’re always looking for ways to increase the security for our users and developers, because a trusted platform becomes more widely adopted.

Starting today in the Chrome Web Store, you might notice that your item is not broadly available immediately after you publish it. Don't panic - we are just adding additional checks to keep our users secure. Most items will be publicly available within several minutes of publishing, however it could take up to 60 minutes for the scan to complete. Unless we see something worrisome, most items should be publicly available several minutes after publishing, almost always within 60 minutes.

This new functionality does not require any action on the part of developers. When you publish an item in the store, the developer dashboard will indicate that your item is in the process of being published. You can cancel the publishing process during this time if you want to make any changes to the item.

As always, we welcome your feedback on our G+ Developers page or our developer forum.

I hope that this means a cleaner Chrome Web Store with less misleading crapware.
 
I'm guessing it's just a static analysis engine, attempting to detect malware. As such, subjective quality is still debatable, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Personally, I do agree there, is a lot of low quality products in the store. Quality is a hard problem, especially since the store serves so many purposes, but I think it deserves some time/thought/effort.
 
I would like to have a Chrome extensión for qemu not only for having an HTML good front end.

It will allow Chromebooks to run other OSs without having to loose security.

It will also allow the Pixel to run Android virtualized with VGA passthrough what will make the Pixel one of the best tablets - in this case hybrid - in performance.

And without entering in developer mode - for Crouton - use some software with any Ubuntu or Manjaro installation, and of course install MS WOS or even OSX for rare users.

From an almost mono OS - Chrome OS computers - to multi OS, and perhaps with the Android OS preinstalled - Samsung already does it with MS WOS 8 - sells will increase a lot and of course more brands will make hybrid chromebooks.
 
thanks for this improvement. google chrome web store shoul scrutinize what behind the codes, it will satisfy the customers and users. congrats!
 
Does chrome extension facing the same situations?
 
Today even www.google.com is crazy slow and I was not able to login to Gplay from a link or from the  google bar, also G+ login was desperate slow.

I hope tomorrow will be a better day.

As we see now - it's not as thought! Creapware is coming by buying successfully apps and add ads (and only ads, no usefully feature and Google does actually nothing - hope this change)
 
My published chrome extension still shows "Published to Testers" under status. it has been one day i had published. I dont have any tester added in my account. Why my extension is not showing up in web store even after search.
Also it is saying "You have published 0 item(s) (excluding themes) out of your maximum allotted 20."
