Inspired by my own meta question: Show the bounty notice/reason on hover instead of “this question has an open bounty worth x reputation”,

I created a userscript which helps to view the bounty notice in the Featured tab.

With this, If you hover over the blue box, you can view the notice instead of the traditional message, "This question has an open bounty worth X reputation."


At present, it only supports Stack Overflow. Will update soon.

  • As you mentioned in the post, this user script is only for the featured tab, then you can change the @match *.stackoverflow.com/* to @match *.stackoverflow.com/questions/bounties/size, it will reduce the user script is not trying to run on the all questions
