We have seen our fair share of documentaries in the past which involves hunting down something or someone – a great treasure perhaps, or clues in a murder case that happened years ago. Well, code hunters could be the premise for a new documentary, as some folks have discovered clues of future and upcoming software being embedded or included in current versions of a software. Case in point, it seems that there are clues pointing to Google Now making a move on the Chrome browser sometime down the road, and even on the ChromeOS itself.
Folks who have given Google Now a run with the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update would realize that this is one interesting system that pulls together everything that Google has a handle concerning you from your search history, GPS location, and even calendar events, pushing out the kind of information that you are looking for intelligently. It seems that the Chromium branch code has added “skeleton for Google Now for Chrome implementation”, which means we could see Google Now cards integrated into the Chrome Notifications system down the road. All it takes now is some patience, and when contacted, Google mentioned, “We’re always experimenting with new features in Chrome, but have nothing to announce at this time.”
