.@john_nye all the stores I’ve submitted extensions to do manual reviews. Mozilla:
Safari and Opera have fairly basic, boring forms for uploading stuff, and are extremely picky and unclear about exact image sizes for screenshots and icons. There’s also no “review in progress” page, but otherwise acceptable.
Obviously I’ve not been able to actually submit an extension to the Chrome store, but I’d hope that it’s a damned good experience for $5. If they are doing automatic reviews, then the price becomes even more counter-intuitve. If they’ve automated it, surely it’s cheaper and quicker for them?
.Jack Way no other extension store (mozilla, apple, opera) demands payment, or requires it for verification. Also, Mozilla offers a far superior extension upload experience. Google has no excuse :)
Google demands developers pay them $5 for the privilege of letting people put extensions on the Chrome Store.
I think not.
Looks like google isn’t just counting items in data tables, lists too:

I love it when there’s lots of snow on the ground. It enables us to see in (blurry) 4D.
And I get to draw googly eyes on all the bins.
If you traverse google street view in the opposite direction the camera was going, you're going back in time
