Receive push messages when the browser is not running


(Core :: DOM: Notifications, enhancement, P3)

(Whiteboard: btpp-backlog)

Actually processing the message will probably require the entire browser, but a minimal agent could receive the messages and launch a windowless browser.

Hi Martin! Since nobody seemed to really miss this for quite a while now, do you still think we would want this some day?

Type: defect → enhancement

Probably worth keeping on the books, but I don't think we have the cost/benefit ratio sorted.

This is a quick tip to help you to debug your push notifications when the browser is not running. When you are developing push notifications, it's often required to test them out when the browser is not running, for example, when your application is installed on a device and a user clicks on a notification.
