After a quick search on the Internet I found the following post on StackOverflow blog: We’ve noticed there are a number of users running a script … Continue reading If you’re using StackOverflow Notifier – Read this!
Update: New version has been released in case you're using the last version (V126.96.36.199) please use this version instead.
