    How to send push notification to web browser?
    « on: March 12, 2019, 10:57:09 PM »
    I have been reading for past few hours about Push Notification API and Web Notification API. I also discovered that Google & Apple gives push notification service for free via GCM and APNS respectively.

    I am trying to understand if we can implement push notification to browsers using Desktop Notification, which I believe is what Web Notification API does. I saw a google documentation on how this can be done for Chrome here & here.

    Now what am still not able to understand is:
    • Can we use GCM/APNS to send push notification to all Web Browsers including Firefox & Safari?
    • If not via GCM can we have our own back-end to do the same?
    I believe all these answered in one answer can help a lot of people who are having similar confusions.
