Enable Browser Notifications

Browser push notifications are used by Text-Em-All to alert you of new inbound messages when you have your account open in your browser, but not focused. This means that if you are looking at your Text-Em-All account in the browser you won't get a browser notification, but if the tab is open in the background you will get a browser notification.
