Support for the NotificationOptions.requireInteraction property, letting authors hint that a notification should remain readily available until the user clicks or dismisses it. When omitted, Chrome desktop will start to close* notifications after ~20 seconds (rather than the toast remaining permanently on-screen); Chrome for Android will be unaffected, since the platform requires that notifications are always minimized there. *Chrome OS only - auto-minimize to the notification center.
