Chat Reply Helper for Stack Exchange sites

Handle structured conversations more conveniently.

How it works

  1. Press : to start replying to a previous message.
  2. Press as many times as you need to mark the desired message.

What does it do?

First of all, the Chat Reply Helper for Stack Exchange sites provides a simple input sequence to select a message to reply to. This behavior is also implemented for the SO-ChatBot !!tell and !!s triggers.

This removes the need to grab the mouse and aim for the tiny reply icon. It also has the small side effect that it allows you to reply to your own messages, to possibly reference an earlier post.

Second, it puts a highlight on the message you're currently replying to.

Third, it displays the contents of the message that was replied to in a small bubble. This bubble is shown when hovering over the indicator that a message was a reply to an earlier message.

Reply Bubble


Developed on Chrome, should work in Greasemonkey as well.
