Notification API Test Page

Display ephemeral notification popups. See:,

This is surprisingly complicated to get working. The straight-forward examples work on desktop browsers but fail on Android phones. To get it working there you have to generate the notification from a Service Worker, an otherwise unrelated API. There's some discussion of this change here.

Also, when the first notification appears on an Android phone, it makes a loud "Bing!" sound and vibrates. Turning off the vibration is documented and works, but I haven't found a way to turn off the sound. So that's going to get pretty annoying.

On iOS, web notifications are not supported at all for now.
