Chrome Web Store users now on can try out an early version of the new "Trending" view, that shows which apps and extensions are currently growing fastest in the store.

"App subcategories were also recently introduced into the store. These allow you to dig deeper into each app category. For example, in the "Entertainment" category you can click on the "Music & Radio" subcategory to only view music related apps," the Chorme team said.

Searching for a particular app has also improved. The search box now sports autocomplete suggestions that guide you to the app or extension you are looking for, faster.

And for those looking for apps with a particular functionality - e.g. apps that work offline - the new app badges can be of help. "Just look for them on the top section of an app's landing page in the store and click on them if you want to see other apps that have the same functionality. They now come in two flavors - playable on Google+ and offline - and more will follow," the team posted.

All of these improvements will especially come in handy as more apps and extensions launch every day.
