With Mavericks just around the corner, websites begin supporting Safari push notifications
Apple is expected to unveil -- and ship shortly thereafter -- the final version of OS X 10.9 Mavericks at its media event today. With the new OS' launch fast approaching, some big-name websites have decided to switch on Safari push notifications a little early, notes MacRumors. If you're currently running a build of OS X 10.9 Mavericks, you can navigate to The New York Times and NBA.com to check the new feature out.
With Safari push notifications in OS X 10.9 Mavericks, users can choose to get popup alerts from websites announcing breaking news or other information, even when Safari is closed. The notifications will appear in your desktop and in OS X's Notification Center, as notifications do now in OS X 10.8, and will also appear on your lock screen under 10.9.
