Windows Store Now On The Web

You can now browse the Windows store from the web - something that I had taken for granted that you could do already. I have only ever been in the Windows store (the repository for Windows 8 apps, a'la GooglePlay) a couple of times, and then from within Windows 8. Now, though, you can see what you may have been missing right here, although it almost looks like Microsoft does not want you to see what's in there. There's only very basic searching by title or type; for example, if you type "games" in the search box you will see a list of games that you do not appear to be able to sort in any way - odd. Microsoft's relative lack of quality apps for Windows 8 has been the subject of a lot of commentary, and I don't think this poorly presented collection is going to help that.
