Google has added a new section in their Chrome Web Store.
This section highlight apps that have been given a +1 by people in your Google+ Circles.
The idea is let you find out apps that are recommended by your friends and relatives.
Google has also added their own recommendations in this section. This section highlight apps recommended by the Chrome team. You can also add them to your Google Circles right from Chrome Web Store.
Google spoke about this new update:
Starting today, the Chrome Web Store helps you do just that. You can now share all of your favorite Chrome Web Store items with people in your Google+ circles by finding them in the Chrome Web Store and clicking the +1 button located in their store detail page. You can also review app, extension and theme recommendations from anyone in your Google+ circles simply by clicking on the “From your circles” link, located in the left category menu in the Chrome Web Store. And for those of you who are relatively new to Google+, we’ve also included suggestions from some of us in the Chrome team.
