Situation: Out of nowhere in chat:
@enderland - you are the most awesome person ever
Results: Hooray! I'm awesome. I have a little notification above my gravatar! Wooooo!
Problem: The Must.Make.All.Notifications.Go.Away person I am navigates to that tab. Ahah! Someone thinks I'm awesome! Now the notification goes away... right?
No, it doesn't. Which isn't a problem if it's year 2000 and I used a mouse, but it's 2013. Cmd + (tab_number) gets me there immediately.
But... the notification doesn't go away. It lingers... taunting me. I hear a voice calling, use the mouse, I dare you. Or you will see the notification... always.
So I click Escape on my keyboard. But alas, it does not work!
- Why does Escape not clear notifications on Google Chrome for Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)?
This also does not clear notifications for Chrome on Windows 7.
