Those who prefer to fool around with the beta release of Chrome have already been treated to these features, but for everyone else some great new features have arrived to Google’s mobile web browser. Chrome for Android 42 is out, and it brings a big new feature.

On tap is a new system that allows properly-coded websites to send notifications straight to your phone whenever new content is available. This sort of functionality is typically only available from native applications, so the ability to get them through your web browser without having to install anything else is a pretty cool feature.

Other changes include an improved function for adding your favorite sites to your home-screen, as well as your typical bug fixes and performance improvements. It’s all waiting for you at Google Play so give it a go as soon as possible.
