Flash icon in TaskBar when something happens and browser is minimised

    I display some alerts dynamically in a div. This is great when the
    browser is maximised but I need some way of alerting the user if the
    browser is minimised to the taskbar. Is there some effective way of
    doing this?

    I'm not sure but maybe you could give window.focus() a try?

    I tried

    <html>
    <head></head>
    <body onblur="self.focus();">
    </body>
    </html>
