An idea for the New tab initial screen in Chrome

This one isn't a shot of anything visually interesting, rather an idea I have.

The section with most frequent apps shown in new tab in Google Chrome is quite useful for me. But I always felt it could do more. How about showing me notifications from each of these apps?

Browser is an OS inside an OS. So browsers and SaaS apps could work more tightly. Apps could notify browser about the number of new notifications and the color for notification bubble. That's it.

New notifications on dribble, facebook or twitter? New unread items on feedly? Newly added files to my shared dropbox? Here, no problem.

I feel this part is missing here. But, hey, that's just me! What do you think about the idea?

Please check @2x for all the "details".
