Your Stack Overflow notification inbox, right into your browser's toolbar.

  • it checks for new notifications every minute
  • shows a notification badge for new items
  • supports all Stack Exchange websites

This is a pretty basic extension. Hopefully, it will get more features soon.

I hope you'll enjoy it ;)




From Google Extensions Library




js, html, css

  • @nuc: This look promising, but before I install this, can you choose which stack exchange site you want to follow ? I would like to follow the Android , not just the Stack Exchange site.

  • @edelcom You get the same notifications as your StackExchange inbox, which means they include all Stack Exchange websites.

    I don't know if this qualifies as an answer on this site, but I have a go at it, all the same. This extension does what it says it does. So this is a nice addition to the chrome toolbar. Thanks - hope to see some more work from you.

  • @nuc this is great!!! One thing that I guess you can't fix is that sometimes (not initially though) it will mark the items as read, so there will be a new item, and the extensions tells me this, but on the websites it doesn't tell me there are new items,

  • @Jonathan Actually, there is a way to fix this. I hope I'll get some time during this week and provide an update. Thank you for your feedback :)

  • @Edelcom: but how does one tell if it is working? Mine isn't showing anything yet...

  • Weird. I go into the Developer Tools to try and figure out why the thing isn't working, and then it ends up working after all...

  • @Nuc something else I noticed is that if I leave chrome open on my desktop then the notifications go there and not to my laptop. It would be great if you could make them go to both.

  • @nuc Is a great idea, but the counter is not refreshed until browser is restarted. This is very annoying. Please update. Thank you! Nov 13, 2011 at 7:31
  • Ping. Ping. As many have noted here and in reviews in the Chrome store, this sucker is currently broken. It's a great extension and we'd love to have it back! Is this going to be addressed?

  • I installed this tonight, because the OS X menubar app Stack Exchange Notifier stopped working today. It shows all my recent notifications up to the time I installed it, but no new notifications since then.

This is really cool! Thank you! But it needs an update asap!

There is an issue with the counter.. Please resolve!


You know, you should probably set the "Developer website" to point here rather than to http://nuc.gr.

I was just trying to get back here from chrome://extensions, and upon opening your page, I almost despaired of getting back here — it just looked so sparse. Fortunately, I persevered until I found that the word "geek" linked to your apple.stackexchange.com profile, from which it was easy to get back here (just had to click accounts, then stackapps, then open the only "question" listed, as it happened).

Or, if you'd rather, I guess you could just put a clearly-marked link to this page onto http://nuc.gr; that would only be a tiny bit less convenient for those headed back here, and would still let people know about your cute kid ;-).


Could you add the ability to specify whether questions open in incognito or not? Or even if you're currently browsing in incognito and you click on a question; it'll open in incognito. Would be helpful.


May have missed this in the extension, but it would be great to add the ability to get notifications for new questions in specific tag(s).
