A new version of Chromium for Windows was released recently, and which already should be cause for celebration, but it seems an eagle-eyed developer has spotted some code within the latest build in order to allow for a notification center to be enabled.
In order to see the notification center for yourself, you’ll need to toggle the “Enable Rich Notifications” flag in chrome://flags once you download the latest build of Chromium for Windows. The notification center pops up like you would expect towards the bottom right of the Chromium browser and can be dismissed by clicked on the cross in the upper-right corner of the notification. A “Clear All” function is also available, which could hint at the possibility of multiple notifications alerting the user.
The addition of a notification center to Chromium may hint at a future release to Google’s Chrome browser. Not only that, but the code may also hint at support for Google Now in Chrome somewhere down the line.
