Ahead of the final unveiling of OS X Mavericks at tomorrow's media event and
an expected public launch soon after, several high-profile websites including
_The New York Times_ and NBA.com have begun supporting the new Safari push
notifications feature included with Mavericks, as noted by user _Sky Blue_ in
our forums. The feature allows users to subscribe to a websites' notification
services and have various types of alerts pushed to their Macs even when
Safari is not running.
Push notifications in Mavericks may be a handy alternative to RSS or Twitter
for many users, delivering clickable notifications directly to the users'
desktops in a timely fashion.
While several sites have already begun to go live with their notification
services, accessible to users running the OS X Mavericks beta, others will
undoubtedly be following suit as Mavericks officially launches to the public.
_MacRumors_ will be supporting the feature, allowing users to receive instant
notifications whenever new articles are posted to the site.
OS X Mavericks is expected to launch to the public before the end of the
month, but may arrive as soon as this week following the final introduction at
tomorrow's media event.
