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 know you an subscribe to an RSS feed to get the questions for specific tags. I wonder if there are any tools beside email, like browser plugins to get noticed, as I'm not using any RSS reader.

Update my question that I'm not looking for email subscription. – Andreas Köberle Jul 12 '13 at 9:05
For popular tags like [java] this would be madness but for specalist tags like [jmonkeyengine] it would be nice if you could have new questions come through the notifications (clogging up email would be a bit much though) – Richard Tingle Jul 12 '13 at 9:33

Well, there's always email: (removed re question update)

You could just leave the page browsing those tag(s) open on a tab somewhere, and it will notify you of new questions in the title bar:

and on the page:

(which you can click to get the new questions)

You can monitor multiple tags this way, for example here's java, .net and python on stackoverflow

Did you noticed the " question with new activity".

Are you looking for this kind of feature, if yes, then it is already implemented.

The subscribe function and the RSS feed on tags are separate features. One allows you to get email notifications of questions in a tag. The other you read with an RSS reader.

To use, simply hover over a tag to get the tag card and click subscribe.

I came up with this hack. I use the RSS notification alert extension for chrome and add the RSS feeds for the specific tags.
