For users:

Gmail notifications let you know when you have a new email. You'll see a pop-up when a new message arrives so you can keep track of your mail even when you’re not looking at Gmail.

For developers:

Web notifications defines an API for end-user notifications. A notification allows alerting the user outside the context of a web page of an occurrence, such as the delivery of email.

Version: 0.9.0

Tested on:

Internet Explorer 10, 11 x Windows 7, 8.1, 10
Detecting of Notification availability
  • It already supports
    • Notification.requestPermission(function(res){})
    • Notification.permission
    • showing of the Notification with title and body according to chosen permission
    • replacing the Notification with the same non-empty tag
    • closing of the Notification
    • calls of onshow(function(){}), onclick(function(){}), onclose(function(){}) and onerror(function(){})
    • queueing of the Notifications and stacked display
    • icon parameter
    • Settings window to see and manage configured web sites (right-click on Notification window, or run IE Web Notifications from the start menu #4)
    • Toast notifications (one can enable them on the Settings window)[experimental]
  • The installation is UI less, so if there is no any error message it's probably successfully installed. Launch Internet Explorer, enable the plugin, now it works in a new tab or after restarting the browser.

Have fun!
