Gmail Adds Desktop Notifications For Chrome Users [gmailblog.blogspot.com]
Many of us are guilty of constantly switching back to Gmail to check for new messages. And if you’re like me, you’ve probably missed an important chat message because you weren’t looking at your Gmail window when it came in. If you use Google Chrome, these days can be over since we just launched HTML5 desktop notifications which display pop-ups whenever a chat message or new email arrives.



Nice idea, but, I wish I could turn off all 'phone-home' activity in Chrome and Google apps.

I first thought, How Cool and then my brain kicked in and I wondered about the phoning home. They should have to explicitly state what, how much, how often ... The learn more link tells you nothing.

I already use the mail notifier on my desktop but the chat notifier is a handy addition.
