StackEye v2.0 brings another great feature viz Follow users on all StackExchange sites. Just go to the profile page of the user and click Follow and there you go.

All the Jon Skeet's fans, this feature is for you. Follow him and get informed of all the posts made by him. Keep learning from his great answers and questions. There are too many experts out here on StackExchange like Jon Skeet including (RobW, Barmar, VonC, TJ Crowder, Felix Kling and a lot others). I can't name all. Just follow your favorite ones and keep learning.

StackEye is also avaible in Chrome Store. I have updated the new screenshots (as per 2.0) in my original question.

Feel free to report any bugs, suggest new features. I will be more than happy to discuss anything about it. Here is the github reporsitory of StackEye
