In case of multiple notifications from the same site (pushed by Chrome browser) Notification applet in tray shows only last one.

E.g. using this demo https://gauntface.github.io/simple-push-demo/ I pushed 3 notifications, but in tray I see only the last one.

At the same time system notifications pushed by notify-send tool:

/usr/bin/notify-send "hello"

showed as expected, every notification is in the list.

Is there a way to prevent notification overriding?

It seems each notification must have unique id, otherwise it will be overwritten. All notifications are visible after replacing static id to random:

chrome.notifications.create(Math.random().toString(36).substring(7), {
                title: 'title',
                message: 'text'
