  • (2020-03-02) Bean: Excellent. It's very useful. But I don't want to get notified by this extension while I'm in a Stack Exchange website because the website itself notifies me. Thanks!
  • (2016-04-09) Or Schiro: Simply great to receive instant notifications of follow-up!
  • (2013-12-11) Jeremy Paulding: Does exactly what it says. Very handy for staying on top of 'recent' Q&A. Update: after further use, there's a couple of things that keep this from being ideal for me: - notification persist until interacted with. maybe good for some, but my preference would be a growl that goes away after a little time. perhaps this could be a setting? - squelch could be handy. or snooze for N minutes. some way to keep an active thread from getting spammy and interrupting other work. Very handy, though, and I'll be continuing to use even w/o improvements.

    is it possible to have an icon in the toolbar like stack alert has?
  • (2015-07-30, v:1.6.8) Sarah Lasair Berry: Privacy Concern
    Hey, um... Listen, what's this all about? I clicked on "Grant Token" and it told me the permissions it's requesting, and one of them is "perpetual access"? What, will it have access to my account even after I uninstall the extension? Is there no way for me to remove access? Screenshot here: https://i.imgur.com/79ISnoC.png.
