I'd like it for IE10 or IE11.
I just click User CP and it give a complete list of new replies to threads I've posted in, no emails.

I do that too. I don't need an App for it though. The image below is my Favorites Bar from IE11. There's only a few sites that make the rating for space on that bar. One click and I'm there.

Helluvan idea Ken, never thought of a favorite right to the User CP. How do you get them to arrange non-alphabetically?

Click and hold. You can then drag it to any order you want. A vertical bar will appear to show you where it will go.

I personally think you should have waited to release it until that was done. That is a feature that would make this useful and have me download it asap. Right now it is nothing more than a bookmark which is kind of pointless imho.

Having said that, kudos to you for actually making an extension. I would have no idea where to start or begin with that.

I hope that was not taken in offence, and was seen as just a slight nudge to keep at it.


PS: I also want to note that currently the extensions requires 2 permissions:

-Read and modify your browsing history
-Access your tabs and browsing activity

Not sure why it would need those 2 permissions in its current stance. Maybe the second one is needed to open the tab?

Here are some links that may help you:

No worries guys, yeah there is lots of room for improvement. I just wanted to get it out ASAP, for some feedback.

Today there will be some major updates. Im hoping to incorporate the use CP within the extension.

That was we can view our Notifications, PM, Rep, Profile ECT without being on the site itself.

As i have said its basically a glorified bookmark at the moment.

Sorted out the Permissions, The reason it wanted to "Modify your History", is so when its clicked it can write into your history.

Personally i dont think its a permission. But heyho Google Chrome for you.

I've gone even lazier and have these on my desktop, one click takes me to my Subscriptions page so I don't even have to open Firefox.
