Can I directly set browser notification to allow?

Is it possible to directly set the notification to allow instead of using Notification.requestPermission() which prompts the user to Allow or block?

No, and we should all be glad that we can't. It would be an absolute adware nightmare if sites could just bury themselves directly into desktop notifications.

This is why alert() is blocked by browsers in most cases now

Nope. And that's exactly how it should be.
