Abstract

Web notifications defines an API for end-user notifications. A notification allows alerting the user outside the context of a web page of an occurrence, such as the delivery of email.

Status of the Document

This section describes the status of this document at the time of its publication. Other documents may supersede this document. A list of current W3C publications and the latest revision of this technical report can be found in the W3C technical reports index at http://www.w3.org/TR/.

This is the 19 May 2015 W3C Candidate Recommendation of Web Notifications. Please send comments to public-web-notification@w3.org (archived).

The W3C Web Notification Working Group is the W3C working group responsible for this specification&#x27;s progress along the W3C Recommendation track. The Working Group expects to advance this specification to Recommendation status.

A specification for Notifications is also being developed at https://notifications.spec.whatwg.org/. Recent work there has focused on integrating notifications with Service Workers and other new features. That specification also deprecates the onshow and onclose events that are present in this specification, under the rationale that those events lack sufficient use cases.

Publication as a Candidate Recommendation does not imply endorsement by the W3C Membership. This is a draft document and may be updated, replaced or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is inappropriate to cite this document as other than work in progress.

This specification is expected to advance to Proposed Recommendation by 19 June 2015. To exit the Candidate Recommendation stage, the Web Notification Working Group will need to document a sufficient level of user-agent conformance with the requirements in the specification, as measured through the Notifications test suite.

This document was produced by a group operating under the 5 February 2004 W3C Patent Policy.

An individual who has actual knowledge of a patent which the individual believes contains Essential Claim(s) must disclose the information in accordance with section 6 of the W3C Patent Policy.

This document is governed by the 1 August 2014 W3C Process Document.
