How it will work is, If you visit a particular website frequently and block the pop-up notification on that website each time you visit.

In addition to this, Google is planning to use machine learning on its toolbar, the tab that you see on the top of the Chrome browser on the right of the URL. If you use the Chrome browser a lot and keep surfing and sharing links with your friends, the new on-device machine learning model of Google for the toolbar may improve your browsing experience profoundly.
The machine learning model will be able to learn from your browsing experience and show relevant options on the toolbar. For instance, if you share links a lot on the Chrome browser, you will see a Sharing button beside the URL.
On the other hand, if you do voice searches a lot on the browser, you will see a Voice search option. This could be way more convenient for daily browsing.
We aren’t sure what other options could be seen on the toolbar, but this machine learning model of Google will surely ease the browsing process.
