"Normal web pages must ask for permission from the user before they can do relatively innocuous things like show notifications, use the clipboard, or access permanent storage. This makes sense; it would be annoying for random web pages you stumble across to show desktop notifications. On the other hand, if a web app repeatedly asks for permission, that's a terrible user experience."
