The post about it is retained below for posterity.


Tired of manually checking Stackoverflow.com for new answers and comments? Ever wished to access the new Stack Overflow questions with one click? ProStack Lite is the solution.

ProStack Lite is a convenient menubar app for OS X. It notifies you of new answers and comments from Stack Overflow, and provides quick access to the Stack Overflow site. The best of all? The Lite version is free! (Full version coming in October.)

    Hi, yes we are sorry to announce that ProStack is discontinued, due to poor sales and the newly-added browser support for native notifications. :( If you use Chrome, we recommend chimeapp.com as a replacement, before StackOverflow adds support for Native Push Notifications.
