PushBullet support send notification to android, iOS, Chrome/firefox browser and Windows Phone (unoffically support) by create HTTP request .
But I’m a noob with ruby so…
But I think make a hook when new notification arrive …

Facebook started sending push notifications from chrome a few days back on my Android device.

I guess this is a feature we want for Discourse as well?
