Google Now, the search company's Siri competitor, has arrived on Chrome, bringing its intelligent anticipatory computing to the desktop.

The service—which shows people useful information based on their habits, location, and previous interactions with Google's products—was previously available only on mobile. Using Google Now, people might get notified of flight delays or heavy traffic. The service can also make suggestions, such as telling users to leave the office early so they can beat traffic and make it to a scheduled dinner. Google Now will roll out this week to the Chrome beta browser, giving users notifications on Macs, Windows, and Chromebooks.
