Chrome could get new Notification Center if latest code update is correct

The latest Windows build of Google's Chrome browser seems to be alluding that big things are on the horizon. Google appears to be readying a new "Notification Center" for its popular browser.




When reading over the latest release's code, Francois Beaufor spotted what appears to be templated notifications which can be enabled by toggling a flag in Chrome's settings. This will allow users to create personalized notifications from within a Chrome extension.


Speculation is that the new Notification Center may be the hub for Google Now support in Chrome OS as a recent code revision in Chromium hints at Google Now support. Chrome OS has always supported notifications, but bringing Google Now to the OS could help it become the next big player in the OS market.
