Nice to read the whole bandwagon of shebang is moving ahead. Less nice is the miss of something, the big S for example:
Good news!! On Sep 06, 2021, you shared with us this feedback:
Request - How to change tabs name in Tab group Having vertical tab groups is godsend goody! But I[…]
We want to let you know that we fixed an issue that's related to this feedback in an upcoming update to Microsoft Edge.
Thank you for helping us make Microsoft Edge better than it was before. We can't wait to hear what you think of next!
The Microsoft Edge Team
Probably there's a grammatical bug - it should run "in an upcoming updates to Microsoft Edge".
Anyway, thanks for perpetually rekindling my hopes...

If it fails, navigate Edge to edge://push-internals. This is a diagnostic page that captures push messaging errors. Please provide the contents of this page, although you can remove "Endpoint", "Device ID", and "Channel ID". The last section about errors is most important.

@MarkBarbieri that might be a red herring. I hadn't noticed when I sent it, but that demo site appears to be broken in general (it fails with that same error in every browser...) If you have a site that you normally use that can send you notifications on-demand, could you get the same info when you see a failed notification from it? Otherwise, how about a different demo site like https://webpushdemo.azurewebsites.net/?

@josh_bodner OK, that site worked, but still no notification. I tested that site on Windows (Edge Dev release) and I get notifications there, but not on the Mac.
Let me know if the attached is not enough info.
This is another simple one that works on Windows, but not Mac
Interestingly it doesn't add any output to edge://push-internals

@josh_bodner, I have been running on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS for at least the last 6 months and it has been rock solid. I am finding this 96.0.1032.0 release to be too unstable. On quite a number of sites, I am getting a SIGILL error code displayed after about 2 seconds on the page and it will repeat on refresh. I am running into this so frequently that I am going to have to abandon Edge until this is fixed as I am getting failures on too many sites.

@MarkBarbieri sorry for the delayed response! It's actually by design that that Bennish site doesn't output anything to push-internals. There are multiple ways to show toast notifications, and Push is just one way of doing that. Bennish doesn't use Push though, so between that and the output from push-internals, it looks like Push is working fine, and the problem is on the toast side.
So, can you try that Bennish site again, and maybe also https://web-push-book.gauntface.com/demos/notification-examples/, and then afterwards, copy over the contents of edge://histograms/Notification (if you open that histogram page before doing the tests, make sure you refresh the histogram page after doing the tests). Also, do you have Chrome on the machine, and can you see if Chrome is having the same problem? Ideally, the same channel of Chrome as Edge?

@josh_bodner Thanks, that makes sense, re: the toast vs push notification, although I would have thought both are valid approaches but yet I get neither, so for me there are issues with both toast and push.
Just for clarification, I do not receive any notifications from sites such as GMail, Youtube, (or any other site). It's interesting that on outlook.com it is not even possible to toggle on the 'Desktop Notification setting'. (See attachment). Does the outlook.com team know something about the lack of desktop notification support?
I will install Chrome and test it later today.
Checking edge://histograms/Notification, Bennish does not produce any output (as expected for toast notification) and attached is the output for a single push from web-push-book.gauntface.com
