There should be an image here!Just like Chrome extensions for Chrome browser users, now Chrome 5 is said to have notifications to alert users of different things such as email.

Now the real question is what developers will do with this new ability? Alerts, appointments, the options are without limits. I for one, think this kind of functionality would be awesome with the calendar myself.

Are there other areas that Google Chrome’s alerts could be used? Undoubtedly, yes. But that is something yet to be determined as the developers are still trying to determine what value this new real estate has to offer.
