Is there a way to browse the Windows App Store outside of Windows 8?

I want to be able to look at the collection of apps in the store outside of windows, similar to how I can browse through the Apple App Store outside of iTunes.

I asked a similar question on SO.

While there is currently no official Windows 8 app directory, I came across the website Windows8Apps (though not perfect) that comes close. Update: As @kgander42 has mentioned, there is now a official search page for Windows 8 Apps.

Another alternative is to use Google or Bing to search for apps related to a keyword (for example, site:apps.microsoft.com foursquare) using the site:apps.microsoft.com operator.

@EndyTjahjono the question is about searching for apps not just anything else on microsoft.com! – eric Aug 28 '15 at 5:20
