Soon™, the major browsers may block off http in favor of https... Will we see any block off notifications?

Nope. And anyway, we "need" notifications for Electron apps to function like real apps instead of trumped-up web bloat or something, I guess.

Firefox:
about:config -> search for Notifications, turn 'em off.

First thing I do when I install the browser, right before I add uBlock Origin.
