New Web Store icon appears in Google Chrome

We're sure hoping the Chrome Web Store is nearing launch readiness -- previous launch dates have come and gone, and all we've seen so far are presentation slides. Progress continues, however, and you may have spotted another subtle change on your Chromium or Chome's new tab page. The original multi-colored hexagon has been replaced with a more logical icon: a Chrome-colored shopping bag. So far, we've only heard reports of the change appearing in Chromium builds on Linux.

So, how about it, Google? Will we be able to take our browser out for a little Christmas shopping, or is the Web Store on hold until Chrome OS launches "in the coming months?"

Thanks, Terrence!
