It’s easy to overlook, but Google’s ChromeOS platform is in a near-constant state of evolution. The software inside Chromebooks gets updates and improvements multiple times a month — more than any other operating system out there — and if you aren’t watching closely, you might just miss something significant.
That, my Chrome-carrying companion, is absolutely the case right now.
As we speak, Google’s in the midst of massaging a near-finished feature that completely changes how notifications are presented on the platform. It’s a subtle-seeming shift on the surface, but once you get it up and running on your Chromebook, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it — ’cause it really will shake up the way you work and bring a welcome boost to your big-screen productivity.
