Obsolete: App is long gone from the Chrome store. No source-code available. It was coded for a decommissioned version of the API anyway.

SOUpdater - UnRefresh! (1.2)




SOUpdater is a chrome extension that helps in plugging-in questions asked in stackoverflow in a sidebar and update it frequently without the user requiring to refresh the page. It also provides for unobtrusive notification, highlighted-interesting questions (tags favored by the user in his/her profile) and no.of questions to display in the sidebar.

Being a lazy person I always wanted to avoid refreshing the page to get new questions. Wanted to avoid hitting f5 every so m seconds. So this add-on :).


(Not Sure what should I put here :P. Suggest me if there is any!)

    If you are considering putting your extension under an open-source license, I strongly suggest the GPLv3. Commented Jan 15, 2012 at 20:49
  • I thought about it.. I can specify it here, but I have not added to each of my code files. Will do it in sometime.. Thanks for the suggestion..

  • P.S. You might also want to remove the /publish-accepted?hl=en from the end of your link since it displays a message at the top of the page. Commented Jan 15, 2012 at 21:10
