Bug Description

At this test page,

it only displays notifications from the first button (Notify me!) not the second (Notify me! (HTML)). Also, it doesn't work with any web applications that use desktop notifications, like

This is by design for now. Originally is supported both HTML and Webkit however, items in HTML notifications far succeed that of what libnotify can handle (Multiple images, tabs, colorization, HTML Anchor links) so the decision was made to leave HTML Stylized notifications alone. If libnotify or another notification solution comes along that supports more extensive markup we can re-evaluate.

Also, not far out of the realm of possibility, but future releases of this plugin will have a settings page where this option could be enabled in (Parse/don't parse HTML notifications)

On Ubuntu 10.10 and the latest Chrome stable, the regular "Notify Me!" button (the non-HTML one) results in nothing showing up. Nothing from libnotify, nothing from Chrome's built-in notifications. Disabling this plugin allows them to show. I installed this plugin from the Chrome Web Store.

Rod, can you please create a separate bug report for this, Including the exact version of Chrome you are using, etc. I have been hearing scattered reports that the extension does not work in Chrome on 10.10 but no one has come forward with details.
