Desktop Notifications

Desktop Notifications are new in Mibbit and they only work in Google Chrome and Safari (it might also work in other browsers who use the WebKit engine). Notifications are a way for your applications to provide you with new information, without you having to switch from the application you're already in.

How it works

You have to enable them in your preferences in the General tab under Alerts. After you have ticked the selectbox the browser will ask your permission to show alerts on the desktop. Don't forget to hit the save and close button or else it will not work. The notifications will show you the amount of new lines in a certain channel when your Mibbit window is not focused.
