I think the experience of desktop notifications is much better. Browser alerts grabbing focus can be quite annoying. An example of an app that uses browser alerts is Google Calendar, and I find it frustrating to be suddenly jolted away from what I am doing. Also, I may have more than one Calendar window open, and it is even more annoying to have this ...

Recommend option 1. Not all users will pay attention and not all users will appreciate a dialog box appearing and asking for permissions that they may not want. A warning beforehand (more appropriately, an opening dialog) is enabling to users. It enables them to know all of the information prior to making a decision. It also enables them to say yes or no to ...

I'm always against asking things double, which -in my opinion- provides a bad UX. I would go with option 2 since it costs the user less clicks. It could also be confusing for people that don't understand why you need permission from the browser: They clicked yes on your website and need to click yes again on the browser, that doesn't make sense to them I ...

When a new bid comes in, the ticker pops out a little with a message "New bids have arrived". The user can expand the ticker to show exactly what the bid change was ("+$105 on Wuesthof Knives").

Nice Design :) Coming to how you can show the content, I would recommend a combination of both using a loading animation to inform users that the new bid is being fetched. So it might look something like this Pulling in new bid from the server This informs the user that a load is taking place. Once the latest bid has been loaded, you could change the ...

Is this going to update at regular intervals (e.g. 10 seconds) or is it going to just be an open stream? If it updates at specified intervals, a progress indicator that will notify when the next update will happen might be good. Otherwise, I personally like a toggle above the updating content that will have live updating by default and allow you to turn it ...

Hundreds of actions among hundreds of users isn’t that much of a load for a modern database. Therefore, that’s not a real issue. Nevertheless, focusing more on the User Experience side of things, I think you should look at what Facebook, Twitter and Google+ are doing. They all notify the number of notifications which hasn’t been viewed, but when a user ...
