Google leaves behind code in Chrome that indicates Google Now may be imminent

Google engineers leave behind clues that Google Now may be coming to Chrome browser

Chromium expert Francis Beaufort was digging around the open source Chromium browser code and found crumbs of evidence that Google Now might be coming to Chrome for Windows and ChromeOS. This code was left behind by Google engineers who were working on the Chromium browser.

Google Now is one of the main features introduced in Android Jelly Bean. It has won numerous awards from websites and publications for being incredibly innovative. It was only a matter of time before Google Now was introduced into the Chrome browser. While it hasn't been introduced quite yet, Google's intentions do appear to show that it is coming.

 

But there is no sign of Google Now in Google Chrome for Mac. This is a curious move, but not completely unexpected. Google would, of course, like to keep key features away from its rival, but at what cost to the consumer? We'll know more when Google actually confirms the existence of Google Now in Chrome.
