    Could the system for alerts be tweaked to auto-send HTML 5 DOM notifications to the browser, even when you're not on GBAtemp, with snippets of the alert and a link to the corresponding post or whatever?

    Just something small thanks.

    That's exactly what I'm referring to.
    I'm not too sure whether it will work on Windows if it has such a feature.

    I think he means if you're actually not in your browser window, and in a different window.

    Also, it'd be nice if we could have something similar to a Skype pop-up for Windows.

    IPS 4 forums software has that feature.
    Just use a similar method.

    This is actually something that has been on the table for a bit, something we've been discussing. Getting it tested and implemented is a different story though. We'll keep you posted ;)

    I would normally suggest to run a test board, but that would require running another XenForo license which would make it difficult.
    Just try what you can. :)
