• Apple E-mail to Developers Asks for Preparation for OS X Mavericks Safari Notifications

    On Wednesday, Apple sent out an e-mail to developers alerting them that they should prepare for Safari Notifications, which will be a major feature of the upcoming OS X Mavericks, which is expected to be a major topic of discussion at Apple’s September 10th event next week.

    With Safari Notifications, users will be able to receive push notifications from Web pages directly through Safari whether the Web browser is physically open or not. For example, breaking news from CNN could be displayed as notifications on the user's desktop, as shown above. Apple explains how the feature works on their Web site:

    OS X Mavericks introduces a powerful new way to keep users engaged with your website. You can now use the Apple Push Notifications Service to send notifications to your website users, right on their Mac desktop — even when Safari isn’t running. Safari Push Notifications work just like push notifications for apps. They display your website icon and notification text, which users can click to go right to your website.
    The push notifications appear on the desktop just like any other push notification, as a banner that includes the icon for the Web site, as well as notification text that gives the user the gist of what the notification is about. Clicking on it would launch the Web site that the notification pertains to in Safari.

    Safari Notifications will be just one of the many features coming in OS X Mavericks. Other features to look forward to include native Maps and iBooks applications, as well as other useful features like Finder tabs, App Nap, and Compressed Memory.
