As an avid reviewer (but also internet user at large), I typically have a tab open for a site's review queue, but it's mildly annoying to have to constantly go over to that tab and constantly F5 to check if there are any new review items.

Ideally, I'd like to have the /review page auto-refresh counts, and display the new values live as they come in. For example, a new Suggested Edit is available, the number for Suggested Edits should instantly jump up.

In the same vein, if I'm not on the Review tab, a little notification counter, like on Chat, should be present, counting up for each new review item added since I've last visited the tab:

(1) Review - Ask Ubuntu

Again, like chat, this number should dismiss when I visit the tab and check on what's going on. Perhaps, if at all possible, a desktop notification could also come up on a new Review item, provided I've enabled that feature.

While this isn't a big (or really, important) change, it would still be a nice quality-of-life improvement and let frequent reviewers respond more quickly to things happening in the queues.

There are some user scripts available on Stack Apps which do exactly this.

I'm using Review Stalker Reloaded by Nathan Tuggy myself.

Its purpose is to be a one-stop pinned tab, always checking for review opportunities as aggressively as is useful between multiple sites you configure.
