The website notification was intended to send important alerts to the user in real-time. Hence, they won’t miss any important updates.
However, notification is kind of annoying these days when the website tries to send promotional offers very frequently. I personally hate notification from any site or even the apps that aren’t relevant. Hence, I have even disabled the email notification on my android phone.
While Microsoft Edge does support the push notification like chrome browser, this feature is being misused by marketers and bombarding the notification every now and then. I sometimes receive the notification at midnight at 2’o clock which is quite disturbing.
Thankfully, the Android system settings allow us to completely block this notification. We can even customize to enable or disable notification from the specific sites at our ease within the Edge Android browser.
