I feel like there's a good use case for them, but it's certainly not being notified of news articles or new recipes.
@aaronpk I never use them, but people who like webmail, web calendars, and web chat... I can see wanting notifications from those kinds of tools.
@aaronpk That's what RSS is for.
Maybe if I was playing a turn based game in a browser. But never for a news site, blog, or store.
@aaronpk I keep my notifications from apps very minimal (mostly just chat mentions, and hide almost all app icon badges), so for browser notifications it would be similar... Web applications where something is kind of important to see soon.
@aaronpk It become so common place that I have trained myself to unsee them and just click Block. My notification pane is a very valuable estate.
@aaronpk I’m a career IT pro and I’m notified out. I don’t use browser notifications and I agree with the earlier statement that’s what RSS is for
