I have programmers as a pinned tab. Since some hours I got it highlighted that keeps blinking. First I thought of a bug in chrome but than I saw this message which was totally new for me:
1 question with new activity
Every time this kind of message appears on the top of the question list, my tab starts blinking.
I am way too often in my browser to get such an extreme low priority information (so low that using the word priority is way too much).
A chat should use the highlighting of a tab when someone "pinged" me (which the chat does) but please not a regular SE site!
I searched and can't find a way do disable that. If this "feature" stay, I need to remove programmers from my standard open tabs... this drives me nuts!
