The notification tray at the top of Stack Exchange sites: what is it called? And are there other good examples of this?

I have started seeing a lot of browsers/apps start using this "notification bar" appear from the top to inform the user of certain events: notification bar

I think Chrome even has an API that extensions can use to trigger it. Does anyone know what, if any, this is called?
