Although the Chrome Web Store hasn’t had the instant success Apple’s iOS App Store experienced, especially for developers, it’s still an awesome resource — and one that’s still maturing and developing.

2010 has been a great year for webapps, with dozens of new, exciting apps that let us move even more of our computer experience to the cloud. Google’s Web Store’s launch last month has accelerated this trend, and many new webapps with unique, often iPad style interfaces are now available for Chrome.

However, many of the apps in the Web Store are simply links to great apps that are available to any modern browser. If you install these apps in Chrome, you’ll essentially just get a large bookmark icon to the webapp that you could have accessed by simply entering the app’s URL in your address bar. That’s not to say these apps aren’t exciting; in fact, many of them are some of the best webapps available today. With that in mind, we’ve looked through the Web Store for the best apps that aren’t unique to Chrome. Here’s the best we’ve found, and please let us know your favorites or any we’ve missed in the comments below!
