Upvote First for Stack Overflow
Chrome extension that sorts Stack Overflow answers by your upvotes.
Why did I do this?
I find myself revisiting Stack Overflow questions I've already read.
When there are multiple answers (and approaches to solve something), I upvote my chosen answer
Some time later, I find myself re-visiting that question. Since I want to spare that research I already did in the past, I try to find the upvoted answers made by my user (to get an acknowledge by myself).
What bothers me in this process is the fact that answers aren't always at the top and I have to scroll down to the bottom to see them.
That sucks. Therefore I made this chrome extension that re-sorts the answers by your votes. For instance, if you upvoted an answer and revisited that question later, it will appear first in the answers list.
I suggested this feature on Meta Stack Exchange. However, it seems this might not got the attention of their Product Manager.
Since I see Stack Overflow as an important tool in my daily routine, I implemented this chrome extension as a weekend project mainly to help myself and other developers be more productive :+1:.
