Safari Push Notifications

The iOS-inspired Safari push notifications feature, which Apple has added to OS X Mavericks,this new feature allows web publishers to send push notifications  to mac users even when safari is closed , visitors have control over their notification settings on a per-website basis.

Website Push Notifications

Push notifications are similar to local notifications. They look like the same but  they have their own icon and section in Notification Centre.

1.Push notification sent from  a web server.


2.Push notification in Notification Center.


Push notifications doesn’t display the website domain instead it shows icon of website,the best thing is that push notifications can be received even when safari is closed.

Requesting to display the push notifications

Users must accept the request to receive notifications. The acceptance process only occurs once per domain.



User Can change their preferences for notifications

Users can adjust their notification preferences in Safari preferences and System Preferences.In Safari preferences, users can choose to allow or deny notifications from websites on a per-domain basis by selecting Notifications.


Users choose how they want notifications to see  in the Notifications pane of System Preferences they can set the  notifications  that display as alerts, which stay on the screen until dismissed. Or else they can choose not to display notifications at all.


Hope this Push notifications will help to mac users !!!
