Google Chrome Desktop Notifications now available to third party extensions!
Google has announced that they are now allowing third party developers to add support for Desktop Notifications in their extensions for the Chrome web browser.
Google Chrome has supported Desktop Notifications for a while now but it was limited to few selective services.
Google stated in a blog posting:
As of Chrome 5, we’re happy to announce that notifications are also available to extension developers.
When notifications are used from an extension, there are no permission prompts or infobar warnings. The experience is seamless – it just works.
Google Chrome 5 has just arrived in the stable channel and is available on all the three platforms: Windows, Mac and Linux.
