How to Stop Websites from Asking for Notification Access

The web browsing experience is getting more and more intrusive these days, thanks to modern pop-up ads and autoplay videos with sound that no one wants (luckily you can stop videos from autoplaying), and it remains an intruder in our browser tabs. To make things worse, almost all modern websites try to be nice by asking if you want to receive notifications from them. While I felt like I had more control over my notifications in the early days, these notification requests have become a visual nuisance that occurs every time I visit a new web page. Tired of these never-ending notification requests, I found a way to permanently block them, which inspired me to write this short guide to let you know how to block annoying notifications asking for verification.
