I am not sure if I am the last, but I am sure there may be many here who might not know there is a cool stack alert extension available. The alert extension sits in the top corner of the browser that notifies if there are new comments/notifications. I personally found it very useful to stay in touch with all the notifications.

A personal enhancement request to display it on the sites side bar/ somewhere flashy so that people would download it and use this site better. IMHO this would increase the latency we have before people see that the posts have been answered/comments being posted related to the topic :)

I also wanted to know if there was an email service to subscribe to if there were any updates available/ notifications/ new posts?

Experts please let me know your thoughts!!!
