What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

About the orange "Welcome to Q&A for professional and enthusiast programmers — check out the FAQ!" banner: When I'm not yet logged in and I open multiple links of SO as separate tabs, every tab has this banner on it. It's rather annoying, coz it's intrusive. Pretty much like advertisement pop-up's.

Would it be possible to write a script that does not display the banner if another tab of SO is already open?

Same thing happens when you earn a badge or a privilege. – Harry Joy Mar 31 '11 at 4:55

We didn't do this specifically, we just removed that banner since the usage of it was incredibly low.

+1 for this. I always thought it was unnecessary. Fixed, animated top banners to the tune of "register to view links", "please read the FAQ", etc. are usually a warning sign to me. – a cat Feb 15 '12 at 12:35
