Google has just pushed out Chrome 42, which now includes the new Push API and Notifications API. These two new APIs "allow websites to send notifications to web surfers even after they've closed or navigated away from said site", reports Techspot.


The Mountain View-based giant stops websites from being overly forward with its notifications, as it mandates that developers must have consent for permission to its the Push API. If your system doesn't automatically update to Chrome 42, you can always grab the latest version of it, for Windows, from here.
