Proud to have worked on this and for the team.
 
Push notifications and Add to Home Screen are now available for all users of Chrome

One of the web’s superpowers is its low friction: a new site is always only a single tap away, allowing users to easily navigate through a rich diversity of experiences. The mobile web provides a great discovery experience for users and unparalleled reach for developers.  
Now with Chrome 42 (current stable) we can also have the same type of deep engagement that users love from Native experiences.

If the Web had an API for accessing the users Contacts and Address Book, what would you use it for?

I have my own use cases, want to learn others.

Today is the day! Polymer 0.8 has landed and with it comes some MAJOR performance improvements.

https://www.polymer-project.org/0.8/

We've got a new Developer Guide and Migration Guide up on the site. Keep in mind this is an alpha release so there will most certainly be bugs and rough edges, but this is a huge step toward 1.0. Let me know if you have any questions and I can try my best to answer in this thread.

Deep App Linking is an interesting area especially on Android, my preference is that developers don't do it, but instead rely on url intent-filters.  However, if you don't agree I have documented how you should provide the best experience for users using Chrome.

I thought of one example to demonstrate this concept. I always get frustrated by Linkedin search results in a mobile browser. The link opens in the mobile browser and not in the app and shows an ad to get the app even if it is installed. There is no way to get the browser search result to open in the installed app.

Finally, a saner way to do XHR's with window.fetch()!  The Fetch API offers a cleaner, simpler API and avoids the always fun callback hell by using promises.  It's available in Chrome 42 today, and there's already a polyfill so you can start using it today.

Get started with +Matt Gaunt's HTML5Rocks primer (http://goo.gl/Ns5lS6) and if you're new to promises, be sure to check out +Jake Archibald's great primer (http://goo.gl/Npbzlk)

Could be nice. A lot of the jQuery I use is just for AJAX calls.

Please Help us learn about how deprecations, removals and changes to Web platform API's affect you.

How do changes to web affect your site?The web is constantly changing with new shiny API's being added all the time. However, browser developers also have to remove legacy platforms features, fix spec incompatibilities (or even change when the spec changes) and this can cause massive frustration for users and developers when it is a change that causes your site to stop working. Has a Web Platform API removal or API change affected one of your sites or apps? If so, we want to know how...

The Push API and Notification API are now available for Developers in Chrome 42!  The Push API in Chrome relies on a few different pieces of technology, including Web App Manifests and Service Workers.
