modulator Yeah, it does suck on Chrome a.t.m. Same issues as you, quite inconsistent too. Seems to be slightly worse on desktop than mobile - but both are annoying me too.
Firefox does seem to be work better for me. I have zero proof, but I think/imagine that Chrome is getting progressively worse for posting to the forum with each Chrome update installed. 🤷♂️
Testing, I even managed to get the notification counter to "-1" 😆
