Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Is it possible to use App Tabs in Firefox 5 to send notifications about new comments/posts to your questions?

An App Tab in Firefox is highlighted blue when its website title has changed (e.g. Gmail).

I would like to use this feature on the Stack Exchange sites. Is this possible?

It seems unlikely since Stack Exchange already doesn't show data live -- your inbox doesn't light up as soon as you get a notification, you need to load a new page.

It's more likely this could be folded into a user script like SO Live! that already does live page updating. I don't know if a script like that exists for inbox notifications (SO Live! only does reputation, I think)
