I agree ... I found (and find) the "Web Notifications" moniker to be very misleading relative to the specific content.

Cheers,

My only comment is that when I saw the name "Web Notifications", I
expected it to be about notifications on the Web, perhaps a
backchannel notification extension to HTTP or something like that. So
I wonder if a better name wouldn't be "Browser notifications",
reserving the name "Web notifications" for some future work with
applicability to the whole Web.

Thanks.

Mark.
