Many sites and forums use HTML5 web notifications to show push notifications in browser, even when browser is closed. 

in operation systems like Windows 10, the notifications show up as nice banners in the notification center, it helps to stay in touch among other benefits.

please implement this feature in Microsoft Tech Community.

It would technically be feasible but I worry that many users, except maybe our most dedicated users, might find it a bit of an annoyance. If you can get this idea upvoted enough I promise I will consider it for a future release.

@AllenHi, thank you for your response, there are many websites/forums that offer this feature and browsers also have the option to turn this setting off. Microsoft Edge, Firefox and Chrome, the 3 main browsers have easily accessible option to turn off notifications should the user find the notifications annoying or too much.

Also, this option does not need to be turned on by default. I'm sure you're familiar with Outlook.com because there is a checkbox in Outlook website settings where you can check that box to enable web notifications whenever you receive an Email. so the same option can be added in each person's profile settings, optional.
