As we all know, several changes have been made in Magento Connect on October 13, 2011. Now it has a brand new look, design, search, and navigation. But as they say in Magento Connect promo video, “Magento Connect isn’t new, but it is improved”.
One of the major changes is related to Magento Go. Now the online merchants using this platform can access extensions and customize their stores easier.
Another innovation called Trusted Extensions is the golden standard for premium extensions for both Magento and Magento Go platforms.
In terms of growth, the extensions for Search & Navigation (+34 in comparison with September), Checkout (+29), Content Management (+21), and Customer Service (+19) are the leading ones. These useful tools provide Magento store owners with the new features to improve their stores’ functionality & usability, and increase their revenue.
