Is it me or the Chrome desktop notification system is broken in the new Gmail? I get the notifications for Chat, but not for new emails.

Am I missing something?

  • Have you checked to make sure you are allowing chrome to show desktop notifications? As this functionality is working fine for me

You must have Gmail open in a tab in Chrome to actually receive the Gmail notifications. They work for me.

  • Yes, I know; that's not the point. The point is that they are not working in the look.

  • What do you mean in the look? @Alex Dec 10 '11 at 14:48
  • The new layout design they are rolling out.
