Get Gmail & Gtalk Notifications On Your Desktop!

If you’re using Chrome as your web browser, then you’ll definitely want to check out this handy feature google just added to gmail…

With desktop notifications, you can stop switching back and forth from gmail to check for new emails or chats.  Everytime a new mail or chat comes in, you’ll be greeted by a nice pop-up window like these to notify you.
How to enable these?
1.  login to gmail
2.  click on Settings in the upper right

3.  scroll down til you see Desktop Notifications, and select “chat notifications on” and “new mail notifications on”.  If there is a link that says “enable desktop notifications”, click that as well.

4.  That’s it!  Enjoy!

*note:  this is currently only for Chrome, but other browsers should hopefully get this capability soon.
