I found this cool desktop notification feature in the stackoverflow chat.

When I click "enable desktop notification" it says "Desktop notification is blocked by your browser; help me with this". There is no help for Safari. I allowed notifications for in the settings. The notifications should appear in the OS X notification center ...

I'm using Safari 6 on OS X 10.8.1.

It's seems to work in Chrome, but not in Safari.

Hmm, according to it's supposed to be working in Safari 6. – balpha Aug 28 '12 at 15:12
@Rory Safari 6 is not a beta release, nor a dev release. – kiamlaluno Aug 28 '12 at 15:13
I don't have a Mac, but I just had a coworker confirm that it's working fine for him. – balpha Aug 28 '12 at 15:14

I am using Safari 6 on OS X 10.8.1, and I get the notifications from chat. As far as I recall, it didn't happen immediately when I clicked on "Enable desktop notification"; it happened some minutes later, or when I exit any chat room, and returned.

I also tried disabling the notification messages, to immediately re-enable them, but I didn't get any error message.

It worked for me finally, after I relaunched Safari. – phix23 Aug 28 '12 at 16:25
