Google Chrome Installer is now available in Windows Store

Google Chrome browser Installer is now available in Windows Store(Microsoft Store) for Windows 10 users. However, this is just a Windows 10 web wrapper app that is linked to the Google Chrome download page. From there, users can download and install the browser.

Microsoft only allows web browsing apps using the EdgeHTML and JS engines on its store. On the other hand, Google’s Chrome browser uses its own Blink rendering engine and It’s unlikely that Google will release full-fledged browser in the Windows Store.
