Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1459517
Chromium does not "run in the background".
Last modified: 2017-06-14 12:30:10 EDT
At "chrome://settings/", under "Show advanced options", in the "System" category, there is an option called "Continue running background apps when Chromium is closed".
It does not work.
What app are you testing with?
www.messenger.com & mail.google.com
But I think the main issue is that no Chromium processes are keeping around when its window is closed.
So, as a result, (in my use case) I do not receive push notifications (of new messages, new emails) anymore.
As a side note, trying "chromium-browser --no-startup-window" (which, supposedly, should mimic this "no-window" behavior/setting) spawns processes which are killed after a second or two (as shown in the following screencast).

I don't think this works on google-chrome on Fedora either. Can you file a bug in the upstream tracker?
