Bug Description

Since Firefox now is implementing[1] HTML 5 notifications [2], implementing an Ubuntu-specific notifications API seems to be both redundant and against the spirit of evolving the open web on open standards. Therefore, it might be a good idea to deprecate the Unity Web Notifications API and replace it with plain HTML 5 notifications.
