The Pushbullet team just keeps pushing itself. As if letting us push stuff to Chrome (and vice versa) wasn't enough, they let us push stuff to friends. Then they one-upped themselves by bringing us desktop notifications. Damn overachievers! But really, how great is Pushbullet, huh? My previous review really didn't do it justice.

- With Pushbullet, you can also push links right into your phone's notification tray. Just tap the notification to go to the link.
