Is it possible in the chrome extension to get the device name or other unique information for this device (yes, a unique id) on which chrome is running? The extension connects to the server and I need to somehow identify which device is connected.
The best way is to generate the ID on the server on the first call and save it to the client.
The Chrome Extension API does not provide such identifiers.
There have been use cases like
experimental.systemInfo.* , But such things are unlikely to ever go to production (read, will be available in extensions in the Store).
