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.

Escape does the trick I think? –  Bart Feb 1 '13 at 20:55
@Bart Alas, this does not seem to be so (Chrome on OS:X) - all it does is move my cursor from the wonderful reply-textbox to nowhere.... which taunts me even more... –  enderland Feb 1 '13 at 21:04
@enderland In that case please rephrase your question, because it should work, so this would be a bug report. –  balpha Feb 1 '13 at 21:07
+1 for the all-so-very theatricalism. –  Madara Uchiha Apr 6 '13 at 14:19
