      Thanks Eddie.. I hate these popups which are so annoying at times when you are working on something. This would help to solve the problem. I never thought it is possible.

      I already knew about this tweak… Some times the notifications seem so annoying. Si I’ve already turned off it.

      I would use Firefox. Although Chrome might feel faster on some computers, it may be slower on others (especially on slower hardware). Since Chrome runs each tab as a separate process, if one tab crashes the rest won’t. But the downside of this is additional RAM use.
