I'm not sure if this is for everyone, but the "n question(s) with new activity" notification doesn't show up for me in Stack Overflow. It's really inconvenient having to reload the page again and again, when a simple click can load the questions for me... It works for MSO and English.SE -

But doesn't work for Stack Overflow. It used to work before, but now it doesn't show up anymore. Can this be fixed? It stopped working a couple of days ago...

Note: I've looked at other similar questions and yes, my browser (Chrome) supports WebSockets -

  • On stackoverflow the websocket only gets connected on the tag pages, not on the full newest or active tab. This is due to performance reasons. See meta.stackexchange.com/questions/125677/…

  • @rene Has it always been like that? I understand because a lot of questions keep coming in every second.. But it's the same on (popular) tag pages as well so I was wondering..
