Have been keeping very busy with multiple projects and did not get time to add all the new and exciting stuff on my blog. The great news for now is, I have made one of my many chrome browser extensions public and hope you guys like it.
This extension aims for those who have upgraded to Babel/Hangout chats within their Gmail/Google+ accounts. If you have noticed, now new chat does not generate browser notifications and hence you will never know who is pinging you if your Gmail/Google+ page is open in one of the many tabs. By the time the hangout team sorts this out and releases this functionality in later versions, this extension will actually add that functionality now.
Just go to https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/hangout-chat-notification/gbnhnghpfjmlncfmkdcamdnomjcobgmo and add this to chrome to enable chat notifications for new hangout chat.
Make sure to leave a review, while I make a commit on github.
