If there isnt any way for chrome to notify extensions they I have a hack
in mind, but that would be pretty brutal

The out of box installation of Chrome/Chromium downloads anything in
Downloads folder. We are keep a inotify watch(ugly) for new files
downloaded, but I am not sure if inotify can find out which process is
creating a file.

1) There is an option to change the Download directory. 
2) There is an option for prompting the user to choose the download folder 
everything the user downloads something. 
These two options might break the hacky workaround. 

If we are read the config file which stores the download directory, then
1 can be fixed, but 2 would still break.

Title:
  Make Zeitgeist aware of files downloaded by Chrome

Status in Zeitgeist Data-Sources:
  New

Bug description:
  The Zeitgeist data source plugin for Chrome currently logs website the
  user visits in Chrome.

  A useful additional capability would be for Zeitgeist to be aware of
  downloaded files.

  It would simply the workflow of Download Something->Do Something with
  it.
