One of the best defining features of Android is Google Now. But, if some recent additions to Chromium are anything to go by, the nifty little feature could well be finding its way to Chrome desktop browsers, too. An entry in the Chromium project code site titled “Creating a skeleton for Google Now for Chrome implementation” along with some code revisions, hints that the idea is, at least, at some level of development. This of course means that the service would leap out of its current mobile OS restraints, and become available to a much wider audience — at least those using some portion of the Google ecosystem — and not just its Android platform. The code was spotted by an eagle-eyed François Beaufort, who points out the reference to it working with Chrome’s desktop notifications. While we wait for a more official word, when this might be coming would not be too much to ask?
