About

Per this question: http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/57315/can-we-get-notification-in-the-tab-change-of-title This user script was created to help draw attention to notifications even when the tab isn't in focus. It changes the page title to include the 'unreadCount' from the StackExchange SuperCollider.
