||The view system can present its results as an RSS feed. Why not just feed that into an RSS reader, rather than screen-scraping the HTML view results?
||I very much like the idea and it wouldn't be that tricky to put together in firefox, I'd see it looking a bit like geourl (see link) with a glowing croissant in the status bar when there's something new on the bakery for you to look at.
||If you could make 1 RSS feed encompassing all of your queries then the extension could 'ping' the rss feed every X minutes to see whether the top item had changed. Once you've visited the bakery, the timer can start back at zero again.

||I'm not against this, but speaking personally anything that means I spend more time checking the halfbakery is probably not a great idea.
||No, this means you spend less time checking the 'bakery--
notifications mean never checking when nothing's new.
