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.
