Google brings a Chrome… installer… to the Microsoft Store ars_ab.settitle(1234555)

"[Note to Windows 10 S users] Windows 10 S is incompatible with apps like Google Chrome". While Microsoft has developed a system, "Centennial", for packaging existing Windows applications and distributing them through the Store-a convenient capability, as it provides centralized upgrading and clean uninstallation-Google is not using that for Chrome.
So, even though we're seeing a listing for Chrome go live on the Windows Store today, it isn't the actual browser that you'll be downloading. While we'd like more apps to be available through the Store-if for no other reason than to get the simplified updating and uninstallation-virtually every Windows user already runs a number of non-Store applications anyway. Google would have to create a special Chrome app that would adhere to Microsoft's Store policies. However, it's not an app like many would have been expecting.
Since this involves using the Edge rendering engine this is very unlikely to happen.
