Roost vs Azure Notification Hubs: What are the differences?

Developers describe Roost as "Web Push has 30x better opt-in than email. Increase engagement with your audience using web push notifications". Web Push notifications are delivered to web browsers. Currently Apple Safari on the Mavericks operating system supports Web Push notifications. Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox web browsers are both working on supporting push notifications and will be releasing them soon and we’ll immediately implement them into Roost so that you can send all your push notifications across any supported browser easily and quickly. On the other hand, Azure Notification Hubs is detailed as "Send push notifications to any platform from any back end". Tutorials, API references, and other documentation show you how to set up and send push notifications from any backend to any mobile device.
