I don't have it yet, but I've just noticed this option in the settings page (using Chrome Dev): http://imgur.com/POL5Y.png
It uses this API and it doesn't require any extension. Awesome.

[put at-character here]hebbet: indeed, the desktop notifications feature is part of the Gentle Reminders lab. The new design is being rolled out to every one, not up for all users yet.

I read somewhere that nofications was scrapped from the html5 standard. Does anyone know anything about that?

Do notifications work if the browser isn't active?

Here it says that "the notification API has been dropped". http://www.w3.org/TR/html5-diff/ (5.4. Changes from 10 June 2008 to 12 February 2009)

You can test the API here:

I forgot to link to the Desktop Notifications on the Chromium Project http://dev.chromium.org/developers/design-documents/desktop-notifications. It may answer your question about the 'inactive browser' – I don't know.

I feel there is an unnecessary amount of white space at the top of the page. But over all I like the new look.

[put at-character here]Jérôme thanks!! That was very helpful.

I thought notifications would work when the browser was inactive, but that does not seem to be the case.

That's sort of a good thing, because our company is building a system which does work out-of-browser. Where any website can easily install rich (html5) notifications to a users desktop.

Does anyone find that interesting?

reply here or email me at info[put at-character here]weboob.com (web out-of-browser ;)
