The Friends' Activity Sidebar (FAS) extension helps you keep tabs on what stories your Propeller friends are submitting, commenting, and voting on. A new toolbar button (shown in the extension preview image) features Chad, the older, more mature brother of AOL's little yellow chat mascot. When there is new activity by your friends (i.e., a new comment, story submission, or vote, depending on your settings), the button will be activated and Chad will send a friendly wave your way. Clicking on the activated button will open a list of your friends' activity in the sidebar, allowing you to easily browse their stories and comments. Each time you view your friends' activity, you will only be shown activity that is new since the last time you opened the sidebar.
