With the release of OS X Mavericks, websites can now send push notifications to to your Mac’s desktop. Now today, developer Connor LaCombe, has released Pronto Push, a new service that allows you to receive push notifications for any RSS feed.
Rather than waiting for your favorite websites’ developers to add the push notification feature, you can sign up for Pronto Push, type in the websites you’d like to receive notifications for, and immediately receive a push notification when a new post has been added. There’s no software to install, and managing your subscriptions is done through a simple web interface. You can even manage multiple Macs under one account.
While the initial setup has to be via Safari 7, when you begin receiving the actual notifications clicking on them will open the post in your default browser. All notifications come through to you as soon as the new RSS item is added. You can also elect to receive instantaneous Facebook notifications via Pronto Push.
You can setup Pronto Push for free, please be aware that it does require OS X Mavericks.
