comment New Q! - Google Chrome Extension notifies you of new questions of interest and inbox messages (now with API v2.0!)
Sadly, it seems Chrome no longer allows HTML notifications. I will have to redo all the notifications to be text only. Chrome also made changes to the extension manifest which I have to make. All of this will take time, and I don't know when I'll next get a chance to do it. Sorry.

@oers Sorry, I am not experiencing that problem. But, I am guessing it is an issue related to upgrading the extension. I released an update today, as soon as your extension autoupdates to version 2.1.1 you'll be able to test and see if it works now. You'll have to restart Chrome. Please let me know if it helps as I cannot test it since I can't reproduce the bug. Thanks!

@oers Just released version 2.1. There is now a dropdown list on the options page where you can decide which site's reputation score you want on your badge.

@tenshi Just released version 2.1. The bug where some questions were missed should now be fixed. You should also be able to set an "autoclose" option on the Options page to close notifications after a few seconds or to have them stay up forever.

@tenshi I'm glad you enjoy the extension. I am also noticing issues where I think I am not getting notified about some questions. Obviously that is a serious bug and I'll have to look into it. Self closing comments was a feature some people asked for, but I think I can make it configurable. I can also work on the reputation badge. It may take me some time to get these all in.

@oers Well there were some reviews that thought it cluttered the button. But, I agree that I would like to see my rep. However, now that the extension is multi-site, which site do I show the rep for? I'm also considering showing notifications or rep changes. Perhaps optionally through a setting on the options page. What do you think?

comment API 2.0 is not returning Programmers in list of sites
Thanks. I didn't realize there were so many sites they were being paged. There should be a pagesize=infinity for this call

Yes, this code could use work. It was written a while ago and I have not been able to spend as much time on it as I have wished. SE API 2.0 is on its way. That should give us much greater possibilities in terms of what this extension can do. I hope at that time to start a rewrite. This is open source software, feel free to submit your modifications for inclusion in a later release. In the next version I hope to move to github which should make this even easier.

4. Please clarify where you saw this. I do interpret the html received from the SE API as I expect SE to already have sanitized the HTML.

3. Agreed. I dislike using pausecomp too. It was an attempted workaround for a Chrome bug that caused the browser to crash. I never pause for more than a second and a half, so delays should be minimal. I hope that the bug this was preventing is now gone in current versions of Chrome.

2. Good point. Those javascript methods work perfectly fine, with and without jQuery, but they should probably have been switched once jQuery was added. Note that I am not using jQuery to improve browser compatibility as Chrome remains the exclusive supported browser.

@Achu - I'd like to add that too. It is possible, but will take some work. I'll try to do it the next chance I get to work on this extension again.

@George - Problem should be fixed in the new version 0.8. Tell me if it now works for you. Thanks.

@George - Sorry. I'll try to do it soon. Quick question: In the fromdate parameter passed with unix time, what time zone is used? Can I use in JavaScript new Date().getTime() ? Thanks.

I think I'm aware of that problem. The extension loses track of what you've already seen between sessions of Chrome, so it always shows you the 3 most recent questions and comments when you open Chrome. I plan on fixing this in a later version to do something like limit it to things that took place in the last hour.

Great site! I listed New Q! on it. One thing I'd like to see added is auto-complete for tags so it's easier to choose tags that have already been used like on SO. Thanks!
