“Notifications in Internet Explorer 9 allow for more fluid and faster browsing. Instead of dialog boxes popping up unexpectedly and getting in your way, all notification messages are consolidated in the Notification Bar, located at the bottom of the browser frame. Notifications won't interrupt your browsing by forcing you to act on them before you can continue. You can ignore them if you choose and act on them whenever you like. What's more, you'll find that the messages, error notifications, and warnings you see in the Notification Bar are more informative, easier to understand, and most importantly easier to act on.”
