Earlier today, Google published a Chrome app in the Windows Store. At face value, that's a big win for Microsoft: the Windows Store doesn't have the, ahem, greatest choice of apps, so Google taking the time to make a Windows Store-compliant Chrome app would be a pat on the back for Microsoft.
Unfortunately, it turned out to be an elaborate troll from Google. The Windows Store Chrome app just gave users a download link to the standard Chrome download page, rather than a bespoke app.
