Notifications for new topics (of any category)?

I’d like an option to get a notification for every new topic that is created. Depending on what my notification settings are, this could be an email and/or desktop notification and/or push notification.

I guess this could be achieved by subscribing to all categories (as watching first post only), but if you have lots of those, it’s tedious to add them all – and if new categories are created afterwards, you have to add them manually.

I also read of mailing list mode, but it sounds like that enforces emails, and emails only.
