comment Real-time desktop notifications for Stack Exchange inbox ( Chrome / Firefox )
@LeoUfimtsev Cool. I've opened a new to-do (github.com/Rob--W/stackexchange-notifications/issues/21). I put the steps for the implementation, if you want to you can create a pull request.

@LeoUfimtsev Ah, native in that sense. I don't have a mac, but can you try out the following: 1. Open chrome://extensions, enable developer mode. Click on Inspect background page at my extension. Click on the sources tab, select "using-websocket.js" and set a breakpoint at the first line. Then run delete chrome.notifications; in the console. Then copy-paste gist.github.com/Rob--W/5926727 in the console and run it. Then continue the breakpoint, and generate a notification (e.g. by calling setUnreadCount(1); ). Does that give the desired result?

@LeoUfimtsev The Chrome extension is using Chrome's native notifications.

No, because the Stack Exchange API does not have any information about area51: api.stackexchange.com/docs/sites#pagesize=99999&filter=!*L6X1NvG5lnyyK4-‌​&run=true

@Duncan Yes. See the second-to-last paragraph of the app listing.

@RoyiNamir My extension uses Web sockets to get real-time notifications. This is also used (internally) by Stack Overflow/Exchange. In addition, the official Stack Exchange API is used to get the latest notification count after regaining internet connection (or starting your browser). See api.stackexchange.com for this one.

@RoyiNamir Oops, it was caused by a typo. I've resolved the error and published the new version. You will get the new version within an hour.

@anorton That's not the expected behaviour (and does not happen here, FF 22). Consider upgrading your browser, see also this meta question.

@Myzifer Don't practice pity upvoting, that's harmful. If you get alerted of all downvotes, your computer would explode on Stack Overflow, given the huge volume of questions. Lots has already been said about this topic, just search for "pity upvoting" or "sympathy upvoting" on meta.stackoverflow.com.

Automatically showing up/down votes puts lots of load on the Stack Exchange API, so I'm probably not going to add the feature. Besides, the net vote count is usually the most interesting number. Downvotes are only relevant if you want to see whether the contents of a post are disputed.

@PeterL. Are you still experiencing problems? I'm using the add-on myself, and get notifications as expected. The notifications are triggered whenever a new message is emitted on the Web socket, or when a new message is found after restoring the network connection. If you're seeing multiple notifications, then either the socket connection keeps dropping, or someone has deleted a message, then posted a new one. (PS. I'm the OP, the author of this add-on)

Fixed :) The last update (v1.5.3) introduces a feature which is not even available to 1k+ users: View vote totals at the questions list and search results.

Thanks for reporting, I've even forgotten that I've added that link to the error message. Turns out to be useful ;) I'll check it out later.

@PaulT. Works fine here. If you're trying it in incognito mode, you have to check the tick before "Allow in incognito" at chrome://extensions/.

comment Bring back the Bold!
Consider inserting a stylesheet instead of using jQuery. With your current script, layout inconsistencies may occur if the page is changed by the live update feature. And, stylesheets can also be used with Stylish.
