CHROME Push Notifications

It was a week after releasing the stable version of Chrome 41, Google released Chrome 42 beta for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android. While the new version actually arrived on Monday, the company today offered the new features, including push notifications, ES6 Classes, and Add to Home Screen promotion on Android.

Chrome 42 beta also includes an ‘App Install Banner’, which can be used to pin certain websites to the home screen “in one tap”. Google stipulates that sites must be able to meet “eligibility criteria” which guarantees that pages can be launched successfully from the home screen.

Chrome Beta 42 is available for download for Windows, OS X, iOS, Android, and Linux now, though beta releases are only recommended for the most tech-savvy Web surfers. The rest of us should wait for the stable version of Chrome.
