CEO of Intercom here. 😅 Thank you so much for the love. And sorry that you had to go make this. I 100% agree with you. We’ve a couple solutions in the pipeline. Like all things in software, and especially when you’re changing things that millions of people interact with daily, the situation is more complex than it might seem. But we’re on it. Thanks again for making this and making me laugh this morning. ❤️

Haha, I encounter this problem occasionally where Intercom keeps buzzing me in one of my 100 open tabs (I realize this is a separate problem. Don't judge me! 😛).

@rrhoover Sounds like a secret feature request 👀
@rrhoover @pugson which has been fulfilled by @pravidinesh6 who made this 🔥
Sounds great! (no pun intended) 😆 Do you plan to do the same for other softwares?

@thiagoafram Possibly! Which browser do you use?

It's very clever, great landing - it simply works

Great landing and I can see why people need it

Sad for someone on the other end of Intercom
