Microsoft: Makes your browser notifications less annoying

Microsoft customer surveys have found that people hate browser alerts. So the option of "quiet notification requests" is suggested, something that does not look like the way Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox have turned off annoying notifications.

Microsoft's update on silent notification requests has reached Chromium-based 84 Edge, which was released this week. It is enabled by default, but users can disable it at URL edge: // settings / content / notifications.

Instead of showing the full alert request, you can now hide it behind a bell icon in the address bar.

Microsoft notifications

With "quiet requests" enabled, site alert requests made via the Notifications or Push API will be displayed as a bell marked "Notifications blocked" in address bar, as opposed to the standard look, ”the Microsoft Edge team members explain.

Microsoft says its approach targets users who generally do not see the value of notifications from a site, but may also depend on them for meeting alerts from a calendar web application or subscription updates multimedia that they like.

Placing notifications behind the bell icon allows the user to click on "notifications blocked" to view and accept the request for that site.

"We chose to enable this setting by default for users in Microsoft Edge 84 due to the large volume of comments users about unwanted alerts, ”says Microsoft.

In fact, Microsoft's approach to junk notification content is a little different from its approach. Google. It started blocking full notifications in Chrome 80 in February, instead of hiding them behind a bell icon in the address bar. Mozilla did exactly the same on Firefox 72 in 2019.

Apple Safari does not exclude default notification requests, but users can go to Safari Preferences> Websites> Notifications and then deselect "Allow sites to request permission to send notifications." This prevents Safari from displaying requests.

However, Microsoft is also working on a different approach by “enabling the full notification display when data suggest that users find this site notification request valuable. ”

Microsoft has not explained how it will fix this or when it will activate the feature, but says that users they could keep quiet alert requests if they prefer.
