How can you find out if the current browser supports the Push API and Web Push Notifications?
Is it possible to display the notifications from a website even when Chrome, Firefox or other browsers are closed?
Brave is a privacy-focused browser, with a small market share, and you may be surprised to learn that it supports web push notifications.
Breaking news: the standard for web push notifications (Push API) will be available soon on iOS and Safari.
Many developers have asked if they can use Pushpad for sending push notifications to their hybrid mobile apps. Basically they want to use the W3C Push API inside a WebView. That would make sense, because a WebView is a sort of browser embedded inside an application.
At the moment Safari on iOS doesn’t support web push notifications.
Microsoft has just announced that the latest version of Edge supports the Push API.
We’ve all been there: you have built a great web app, optimized for mobile, but you have to build a native or hybrid web app just to send push notifications.
Fortunately, thanks to the new standards, like the Push API, Service Workers and Web Notifications, you don’t have to build an app only to have the ability to send push notifications. Now websites can send push notifications directly, even when the user is not surfing the website.
Awesome! The problem is that web push notifications work on Android, but not on iOS!
Opera has just added support for push notifications.
