When I go on Facebook, I'm usually prompted to enable or disable desktop notifications. I'm not sure if it's a feature unique to Chrome or not, but it would be nice if there was an option to receive desktop notifications for new PTs/Flagged Threads and announcements.

It would be particularly useful to users who would like to respond to a thread as soon as they can but can't be constantly checking ACC. It would be nice if it could be enabled/disabled for certain threads.

Not at all! Web notifications are a standardised feature, available in all modern browsers except Internet Explorer / Edge.

This is definitely something I'd like to implement. I can see it being rather difficult to integrate with the current aged site, but I think this would be a great feature for ACC 2.0.0!

Pfff Edge. It's IE 11 who are we kidding.

In all seriousness, I would love to have a notification come up when I'm on ACC in the corner, similar to how FB tells me what goes on. Like a little image with a green flag that says ___ has a new post! and then there is a link to click to take you right to the latest post on the thread. =D

If this is something that wouldn't be hard to add for ACC 2.0, I'd like to see some other notification methods too.  Email notifications seem to be common for forums.  I don't know if there is a way to do notifications on a phone without having a separate app (I'm guessing not because I've never seen it but who knows), but if so, that would be nice as well.

There will be! Firefox 44 (coming 26th January) will support this, and I doubt the other browsers will follow too far behind.

I would love this feature! It'd be a lot easier to get notifs instead of just refreshing each time.

We could add animal crossing sounds to the notifs on desktop too if possible? Like the mail box sound but just once. (it'd be annoying to have it repeat lol)
