Vivaldi, which is currently in beta 3, already supports HTML5 notifications feature, that’s useful for users who often visit websites like Facebook, Gmail or other email services, to get or know updates even when they’ve that site not open in the browser. Sites can show notifications only after when you agree or give permission, but they seek your consent for the same by asking you with a pop-up ‘website examplesite.com would like to show notifications’, with Allow or Deny options.
But if you’ve noticed these HTML5 web notifications request dialogs appearing too many while browsing through various sites in Vivaldi browser, you can turn them off if you want, here is how that can be done.
- In Vivaldi browser, Strictly visit chrome://settings/search#notifications, but not vivaldi://settings/search#notifications
- Click on ‘Content Settings‘, scroll down to see ‘Notifications‘ and select ‘Do not allow any site to show notifications‘, ‘Done’ to apply the changes to the settings.
Note: Still, you can allow certain sites to show notifications if you add them in Notifications exceptions (click on ‘Manage exceptions’ to see it).
