Description (last modified by sebastian)


During the test of the Adblock Browser promotional notification we noticed that people either noticed it days later or not at all. Therefore we'd like to decrease the time between icon animations to make notifications more noticeable.

What to change

Reduce time between icon animation starts from 15,000ms to 10,000ms.

What to test

  • Make sure the icon animates smoothly with a pause up to 7 seconds in between
  • Make sure that CPU load doesn't get too high
  • Also test in slow or busy environments

We discussed the interval in the review: Since those 10 (previously 15) seconds are the interval at which notifications are triggered, the time between notifications is, at most, 7 seconds - could be less, on some systems.

Timing seems OK. CPU usage seems OK. Tested with busy background machine load (decompressing things) and "in-browser load" (loading several of complicated tabs before/during animations). Tested both animations.
