Stack Overflow desktop notifier

Is there any way to get desktop notification for Stack Overflow? I would like to know that someone has answered, commented, or voted on my question or answer without visiting the Stack Overflow webpage, and then I can visit Stack Overflow.

I spend a lot of time in refreshing the Stack Overflow page to see notifications.

I don't know if there is one... but I'd find this useful too. I guess we're in the right place for someone to develop one if there isn't one already lol. – Anonymous Jun 20 '11 at 9:07

Have a look at StackApplet on Stack Apps. I haven't used it, but it looks like it should work quite well for what you need.
