I've recently changed my default browser from Firefox to Chrome. Now i'm not able to see new questions until i hit F5.

What can cause this issue since Chrome 21 does support Websockets as confirmed here? Note that I'm not using a proxy or firewall and it works without a problem in FF.

If it's still unclear what feature i'm referring to: What technology/framework is StackOverflow using to asynchronously update clients?

This is my favorite link (newest tab).

On SO or on other sites?

A moment ago i've tested it in Superuser, it works there, also here on Meta! So why should Stackoverflow make an exception?


This seems to be by design. According to the announcement, live updates are:

  • enabled on tag pages of SO, but only in the “newest” and “active” tabs;
  • disabled on the main page and the unanswered tab of SO;
  • enabled on all date-ordered full question lists (newest, active, unanswered) and the corresponding tag pages on other sites.

So you should expect live updates on https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/c%23 but not on https://stackoverflow.com/unanswered/tagged/c%23, and that it what I see with Chrome 21.
