Mozilla always tries something new and introduce something new for its users. Now in the latest experiment of Mozilla to reduce desktop notifications has resulted in a good and new strategy that could work out adequately. Let’s start with the new Firefox 72 that will be going to announce in January 2020. In that version, the user has to enable notification prompts in the browser on each website prior to the webpage displays the notification permission prompt.
Mozilla informed in one of the blogs about the experiment, in which Mozilla told everyone that the user will able to see a little permission icon in the address bar. One of the best about this feature is that each and every time notification will be rejected by the Firefox 72 automatically and if the user wants to enable it, the user can easily enable it by just simply clicking on the icon to view the prompt.
According to the research performed by the Mozilla, they come to know that 99% of users ignore the notification popup shown to them by the website and 48% of the users click on the block button. This testing has been done with the Firefox 63. What they do is they sent 1.45 billion notification popups to the users but out of them only 23.66 million users click on the “Allow” button.
Before the release of new Firefox 72, we will see some alterations in the notification settings. At present, in Firefox when the user visits any website, he/she sees the notification popup but it asks the user whether he/she wants to “Allow” or “Not Now” but at present moment it will show you the popup every time you visit the website. In Firefox 72, the user will not be able to see popup notification every time he/she visits the website. Because in this version “Not Now” button will be replaced with “Never Allow”. After that, the user will not see the notification until the user wants it back.
