Now in Beta!
Have you ever wished the Stack Exchange chat platform showed you how far other users have read? Have you wished it displayed "this user is typing" messages? Emojis? If so, this UserScript is for you!
The script adds these features to Stack Exchange chat rooms, and completely revitalizes your chat experience!
Using this script is easy! All you need to do is follow the instructions for your browser below:
Both browsers proactively disable unrecognized scripts, so you will need to install the Tampermonkey extension.
Please install the Greasemonkey add-on.
Please install the Tampermonkey extension.
Installing and using the UserScript is very easy.
Simply open a chat page and click the bookmarklet.
The script will now automatically load each time you visit a chat page.
Whenever a chat page is opened, the script connects to the central server using a WebSocket.
Whenever a new message is read or you start typing, the script sends a small packet of information to the central server. This information is then sent to everyone else in the room who has installed the script.
