Google Now seen in Chrome Browser code, hints at impending arrival

Google Now seems another step closer to arriving to the Chrome browser on Windows and Chrome platforms, thanks to yet another code spot by Chromium savant François Beaufort. He previously noticed hints that such a feature might arrive, and this time he espied it in a full-fledged Chrome beta release -- sadly, sans the server address necessary to run it. Despite that omission, it looks ready to eerily track your life anew on non-Android devices, so if you're in the mood to look at (but not touch) the new add-in, grab it at the more coverage link after the break.
