Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Just like in Gmail, Yahoo!Mail and many other web apps. Just a number in brackets. So I can keep strolling the web while waiting for responses.

On all pages? Or just the main page? It doesn't seem to make much sense on pages with questions in the title and such – Daniel DiPaolo Apr 13 '11 at 16:13
A related request, though I believe that one merely wants updates to the red marker itself rather than the tab. Nevertheless, I imagine the judgment on this will be much the same. – Grace Note Apr 13 '11 at 16:19
Hmm.. I forgot there was no automatic refresh. So until we have that one, we can't have this. Good point @Grace. – HuBeZa Apr 13 '11 at 16:24
@Daniel, only in the main pages. It will do. – HuBeZa Apr 13 '11 at 16:25
Nice suggestion, once the inbox will be ajaxified.. :) – Shadow Wizard Apr 13 '11 at 19:06
