A forum monitor. (In slow development)
As inspired by the StockMate(http://computer.discuss.com.hk/viewthread.php?tid=11322538) done by xiaoqiang888, an extended version of the forum part is planned for Chrome. The stock part will be a separate extension once the core of this extension is mature. In the early stage of this extension, only the "discuss" forum in Hong Kong is supported. The aim of this extension is to monitor a forum intelligently and provide a quick listing view without the burden of complex HTML/flash/animated_gif rendering. As it is not trying to substitute the front-end of the forum, links are always available for the user to jump back to the forum directly for further interaction. (Though they're possible, lets request it if it fits you) Updates: v1.2: - Dynamic popup height relative to window height - Retrieve arbitrary number of threads (support multiple page reading) - Fix forum id link extraction v1.1.4: Removed the use of referer.us. v1.1.3: Bug fix for false-negative of new post. v1.1.2: Added simple monitoring algorithm. Use badge to show new post. Open option page for simple preference. v1.1.1: Added loading stage to look more responsive. Resized a little bit with a vertical scrollbar. v1.1: Added option page to change the Forum ID. (For advanced users) v1.0: Topic listing of the programming group of www.discuss.com.hk. Road maps: - Tracking of visited groups and present them as choices in the popup view. - Use badge to show the number of total number of new posts. - Add option page to allow more preferences. - Monitoring specific group/user/thread. Usage tips: - Right click on the extension icon to open option page. - Examine the fid by look at the discuss.com.hk.........fid=XXX and set in the option page to monitor group other than the programming. Feel free to request features or discuss on the support & FAQ link below.

- (2016-03-23) Nothize T: It'd be good if it can be extended to: 1. supports multiple groups; 2. manage read history; 3. show up as an assistant (or plugin) within discuzz with additional features; 4. better estimate and add white noise to the polling interval; 5. post following and update notification; 6. post memorization to see masked posts and modified posts; 7. manual and intelligent spam filter for users and threads; 8. group emotional quantification;
