Today I was reviewing my
HTML5 API demos repository to keep its information updated and relevant. In the last two weeks Google has released Chrome 38, Opera has released Opera 25, and Mozilla has released Firefox 33. Every time a new version of a browser is available, it may introduce support for new APIs or change an already supported API to accommodate changes in the specifications. For these reasons, a general check was much needed.
In this article I’ll discuss what’s the current state of the Web Notifications API, what browsers support it, and what versions of the specifications. I’ll use this post also to summarize some inconsistencies I’ve found along the way.
