If you use the Internet regularly, then there is a good chance that you have accounts on a bunch of different web services. Visiting your dashboard on each of these services simply to check your notifications can be a waste of time if you do not have any notifications. Here to help you save this time is a browser extension called Chime.
Chime is a browser extension for Google Chrome. This extension helps you get notifications from a bunch of different popular websites. Supported services include Gmail, Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Quora, Github, Flickr, StackOverflow, and FourSquare. You start by simply installing the extension onto your Google Chrome web browser. The next step is to select the web services from the above mentioned list that you want to view notifications from.
Once this step is complete, you will find a new icon placed in your browser’s address bar. This is Chime’s icon and it will have a number next to it that indicates the number of unseen notifications. You can click on this icon to drop down a list of your notifications. Clicking on a notification in this list will take you to the original service page e.g. clicking on a Gmail message will take you to Gmail.
The ‘All Notifications’ button will take you to the extension’s page that shows you all of the notifications from your enabled services so far. As with the dropdown window, you can click on any notification in this window and you shall be taken to the original web service.
It is quite clear that Chime can be a huge timesaver as it saves you the time of visiting different websites simply to check your notifications.
