Very good. I've been looking for something simple like this for a while. Thanks. As potential future features;
Growl integration would be great
An option to temporarily disable notifications (i.e. when you want to get some work done and don't want to get distracted by revisiting your answers etc!)
A 'run on startup' option
Maybe have the default menubar ...
I like the current logos of SENotifier, but, I was bored, and decided to have a go at making some SENotifier logos as well. And, well, here they are! Tell me if you like them, or any comments! I don't know if the pictures will keep their formatting, though. Oh well.
My immediate feedback:
I’m not normally a fan of applications in place of browser interfaces (Slack is still in a tab for me), but this seems potentially quite useful. (With the usual caveat that my job is basically tied to activity on the sites.)
Switching to a new site required me to click the Google button again, but I didn’t need to use my password or ...

I really like this too. It is great! I second @pastylegs' comment. Growl notifications would be very nice.
I also wanted to add another comment. If you look at the SE inbox on the actual website, you'll notice that it displays past, read notifications:
It would be nice to have several (maybe 5 or so) read notification in the menu bar. I find myself going ...
Er… I’m sorry, but I don’t speak robot. I know enough about computers to get by, more than most civilians, but I was wondering if you could dumb the answer to my problem a lot for me please?
The SENotifier for OX was working perfectly until today, when I took my computer away from my house, and wifi. I’m not sure if disconnecting from the internet had ...
I'd like to request that the app detects when night mode is enabled under general system preferences and switches the icon to a white color.
This is what the icon currently looks like:
... too dark. :(
I also created issue #26, on GitHub, for this.
This is an awesome app, great job.
