okay wtf is mastodon doing that it makes my browser send new notifications without the page being open
@digital Web push makes it possible for webpages to get push notifications even when they're not open (if you allow it)
@vurpo oh wow, TIL
huh so when I allow a website to show notifications on my desktop it also takes that as consent to connect to the public internet in the background, even after I close the page... >.<
@digital I think it connects to your browser vendor's server to do it (so in Firefox it would connect to a Mozilla server to receive notifications while the page is closed), at least that's how I seem to remember it
@digital Falls du dem Zugestimmt hast, passiert dies auch im Hintergrund.
Komisch war es nur bei meinem Matrix weil selbst wenn das kein Fenster hat macht es Geräusche
