How to disable browser push notifications

All website browsers offer a feature that will allow a website to offer notifications so that you can stay up to date with news, emails etc... 

Certain websites are abusing this feature by showing notifications that hint there is something wrong with your computer. If you click these notifications, it will often take you to a website that will contain malicious downloads and viruses.
