The official OMG! Ubuntu! extension
Here's an easy way to stay up to date with the latest Ubuntu news and wider open source developments.
Install the omg! ubuntu! extension for Chrome and Chromium. This adds a small icon to the Chrome toolbar. You can click the toolbar icon to see a drop-down list of the 27 most recent posts published on omg! ubuntu! -- complete with thumbnail.
When a new post is published you get a browser notification. The toolbar icon will also display a count, showing you you how many posts there are unread.
Notification behaviour can be tweaked in in settings.
Unread items have an orange 'bookmark' emblem to the right. To mark a post as a read click the white space before the bookmark icon. You can 'Mark All As Read' by clicking the text in the footer of the extension.
To read an item just click its title to go straight to the correct article on the omg! ubuntu! website.
