How to activate Gmail Desktop notifications

While we browse the internet we normally open several tabs in the browser. If we have minimized the browser we cannot see when new emails are coming until we restore the browser. With this “Gmail Desktop notification” you are able to recieve notifications from the right side of the task bar suddenly when a new email or chat message arrives.

It will be available for all major browsers in the future I presume.
