I was wondering if anybody could tell me what plugin does Stack Overflow use to achieve this.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Why would it be using a plugin? – Bart Oct 10 '12 at 11:36
Hey Bart ! I am not sure.., just thought it would be using a plugin as there are many jquery feedback plugin that offer the similar kind of functionality. – Yasser Oct 10 '12 at 11:39
@Bart you really think this link has the answer ?? how can this be a dupe ? – Yasser Oct 10 '12 at 11:40
I strongly suspect this was custom written, and no jQuery plugin was used. The effect is not that special to build - it's a simple .show() with a fade, isn't it? – Pëkka Oct 10 '12 at 11:41
It informs about all the tools and technologies used to develop the site. So one of them is most likely your answer. And as Pekka says, I suspect it's simply custom developed functionality. – Bart Oct 10 '12 at 11:41
I agree with @pek - All I can see is is a hover event triggering a fade in animation... Not really something you would need a plugin to do... – Lix Oct 10 '12 at 11:42
Thanks for your answer @Pekka – Yasser Oct 10 '12 at 11:47

It's using plain AJAX, no plugin. It boils down to this code executed upon clicking a feedback button: (b is the post ID)

    type: "POST",
    url: "/vote/anon/" + b,
    data: {
        votetypeid: "Yes" == a.val() ? 2 : 3
    complete: function () {}
