When I click on the StackExchange™ MultiCollider SuperDropdown™ button, the StackExchange™ MultiCollider SuperDropdown™ normally pops up showing "hot questions," i.e. when I first click on it this is what I get:
But when I click on the button, I just want to see my recent notifications and happy dancing unicorns:
Maybe I'm strange but I would think that most people use the dropdown box in the same way. So could the "inbox" page be the default? I'd imagine this should be an easy change to make.
As a nice side effect, this would help with the issue some people have brought up (though I can't find the questions now) where new notifications don't remain highlighted after the box goes away, even if you haven't clicked on them. It doesn't fix the issue the way some people would want it fixed, but it does cut down by one the number of clicks you need to look at a notification you haven't seen yet. And when you're trying to catch up on several new notifications, that one click adds up.
