Just ahead of today’s Apple event, and the expected final unveiling of OS X Mavericks, several websites have begun supporting the new Safari Push Notifications feature.
The feature allows users to subscribe to websites’ notification services and have various types of alerts pushed to their Macs even when Safari is not running.
Push notifications in Mavericks may be a handy alternative to RSS or Twitter for many users, delivering clickable notifications directly to the users’ desktops in a timely fashion.
As websites go live with the notification services feature, it indicates that the release of OS X Mavericks is imminent, and will most likely be released in the very near future, possibly as soon as today.
MacTrast has considered using Safari Push Notifications to alert our readers to new articles, and we’d like your input. Would push notifications be useful to you, or would they merely be a nuisance? If we do make use of them, should it only be for breaking news and other important posts, or should it be for every post? Please, share your opinion in the comments section below.
