Some websites would pop up a request to send you notifications whereby you'll have the option to Block or Allow the request. The web push notification, if allowed, will be able to send you messages which will push the notifications to your desktop.
Web push notifications could provide additional value to website visitors, but it could just be an annoyance if not done right. You can disable web push notifications for Google Chrome or Chromium from the browsers' Setting's page.
