Indonesia seems to be quite the technology hotbed, with Angry Birds for Facebook being launched there on Valentine’s Day this year, and now we have word that Internet search giant Google has decided to launch their Chrome Web Store in Indonesia. While the company and branding is international, there is still some local flavor attached to the launch, where apps such as Kompas Editor’s Choice, Prambors, and Kapanlagi are also available, in addition to TouchJam: Agnes is my Game (as seen above) that was developed by TouchTen who specializes in (ironically) iOS games.

Just what is the whole purpose of the Chrome Web Store’s existence? Well, it intends to function as an open marketplace, allowing ordinary folks like you and I to browse, discover, and purchase the apps on the web directly, while letting developers have a platform for them to showcase their web applications. It can be quite hard to locate any paid app in the Chrome Web Store at the moment, but I am quite sure that this will change in due time.
