These notifications can only be sent to users who have opted-in to receive these notifications. They are a brand new/ nascent marketing channel to re-engage your visitors without knowing their email or other contact details. Using web push notifications, you can reach out to those users who are not on your website.

It had been followed by Chrome 42 (market share 40-50% and growing) that provided support for both desktop and android. Mozilla Firefox (market share 16-20%) is going to be soon announcing its support for web push. Safari, Chrome, and Firefox when combined have a market share of about 61-77%. With these browsers providing support for web push the reach of web push notifications is immense.
