Watch questions & answers on the Stack Exchange network of sites to find out when they are edited, commented on, answered, and more!
A very frequently requested feature-request on meta sites across the Stack Exchange network is to be able to watch posts for changes.
This extension allows you to watch posts by clicking the 'watch' button added to the actions under every post on the Stack Exchange network, letting you keep track of edits, vote changes, post state changes (e.g. closures), new comments, and new answers!
Now you can easily go back to a post once it's been modified to reconsider your vote or comments, or because you wanted to know the answer yourself!
The extension adds an unobtrusive icon to your extension bar and adds a small coloured badge when a change has been detected. It checks the API every 10 minutes for any changes to posts in your watch list. It will prompt you for an access token on first install to give it a higher quota for querying the API.
If you would like any additional watch options, please make a feature request in an issue at the Github repo: https://github.com/shu8/stack-exchange-post-watcher/issues. I'll try my best to add it in!
This extension is also available for Firefox! Install it from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/stack-exchange-post-watcher/!
