Author of StackEye and Requestly

StackEye - Chrome extension to get notifications about new answers/comments and also allows users to follow other users on StackExchange.

Requestly - Requestly is a chrome extension using which you can play with network requests.

What an I do with Requestly ?

  1. Redirect HTTP/HTTPS requests.
  2. Cancel requests
  3. Replace some part in URL with another string. Using Replace feature, you an replace query parameters value, replace host names etc.

Why do I need StackEye ?

  • When I find an interesting question on StackOverflow and I don't know the answer, I wish to receive notifications about every communication happening on that question. This really makes me learn things from other people.

  • There are so many experts here on StackExchange and I want to follow the users like Jon Skeet whose answers and questions are always full of wisdom and knowledge. That's why StackEye provides functionality to follow other users as well.

  • Best part of StackEye is you don't need to be logged in user. That's right..Just receive notifications on any question on any stackexchange site without logging into it.

Install StackEye from Chrome Store. You are just one click away from experiencing awesomeness of StackEye -:)

@talegari Do you mean like bookmarking a question and showing in the list ? If I understand correctly, this feature is already present on stackoverflow and I have already opened a task for it github.com/blunderboy/stackeye/issues/2. Though it is not yet done. I will take out sometime and do it. Thanks again!!

@talegari That is a nice suggestion indeed. I hope I get some time to implement this. Can I ask you to rate it and give your honest feedback on chrome store ?

comment StackEye - Chrome Extension to follow users and questions on StackExchange sites
@talegari Its nice and valid question. I just do not want users to watch a lot of questions and then they receive too many notifications. I believe 20 is a good limit because most of the time we want to follow latest questions only. However, I can increase that to 30 or 40 if more people towards it. I am glad you like it.

@brasofilo Thanks for the request. I have opened a github.com/blunderboy/stackeye/issues/31 to add localization feature. I am little busy these days but I will definitely catch this up and work on it.

comment Stack Exchange - Favorite Users
I have developed a very similar app - StackEye which allows you to follow your favorite users and even questions as well. There even exists a page where you can see the activity of your favorite users. Check out the screenshots here
