Here is what my inbox looks like each morning:

Gmail cannot figure out what notifications from GitHub are important, and GitHub’s notification stream, in my experience, is useless. It’s noisy and doesn’t clear the way I’d expect. The problem is, people actually do mention me on bugs. And I often have no idea.

So, I made my own notification system. It’s a Chrome extension that is a little ear that sits next to your location bar. If you have an unread GitHub notification, it turns red. If you’re all caught up, it’s green.

If this would be useful to you, please give it a try!

Download the Chrome extension here.
