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

I saw that the inbox red notification does not disappear even after I have viewed the related question.

I saw on other question that people remarked that it is problematic to track every user page view across the Stack Exchange network.

BUT Isn't it possible at least to do that after I have replied to the inbox comment? I can assume that the system "knows" that a reply has been posted, as it will send a notification to the involved users. So all it needs to do is to notify my inbox that the notification is not relevant any more.
