I was just wondering if there was any way not to get notifications on all open Stack Overflow tabs (such as an answer to a question, or acquiring a new badge). At least, could they be suppressed when I see the answer or acknowledge that I got the badge, and not have to do it on all the tabs.

And if this doesn't exist, could it be implemented ?

I'm often "tricked" into looking one of my questions ten times in a row.

Does your browser not have a "Refresh" button? – Cody Gray Aug 18 '11 at 13:23
Oh wow, I don't know if I was born an idiot, but I certainly do look like one now edit - and sorry for the annoyance – Crafti Aug 18 '11 at 13:25

I support this desire to improve the notification bar.

My suggestion would be to only show the notification bar ONCE. So, when I click on a link in the bar I don't have to see that same notification again in the new window.

This persistent behavior appears to be by-design. – Cody Gray Aug 18 '11 at 13:53
@CodyGray: The design makes me unhappy. Like a great dane forced to wear a cardigan and appear on a youtube video, to be laughed at by tens of thousands. A once noble creature, reduced to a laughingstock. Or something. – Won't Aug 18 '11 at 14:11
