I was just browsing some Stack Exchange sites the other day, when I thought about how nice it would be to have a little information bubble every time I get a new thing in my SE inbox.
Write up a Greasemonkey/Scriptish script that would:
- Enable Desktop Notifications, if necessary, even in Firefox, not just Chrome.
- Check your SE Inbox
- Make a list of everything unread
- If it's larger than last time, display the appropriate notification(s).
It needs not to mess up even if there are multiple SE sites open at the same time.
What I'd really like, though, would be if somebody would take a moment and whip up a Greasemonkey script for this. That would be very much appreciated. I would really, truly be grateful for that.
The reason I want a Greasemonkey script is so I can use this in Firefox. See HTML5 Notifications for Firefox extension to learn more about how desktop notifications are enabled in Firefox.
