I sometimes find while i'm working that I leave the SO question page open (or a specific tag). I do this until an interesting question pops up etc.
Would it be possible (and community useful) to utilise the same feature that is used when answering a question and somone else answers on this screen?
The feature I am talking about is the orange bar alert that says new answers available. I suppose it would work in much the same way that it does on the twitter feed "x more tweets available"
