If you’re a daily subscriber to WorldStart’s Computer Tips newsletter, you know that the other day, I wrote an article about a Gmail tool that is only good for Mac computers called gCount. Well, lucky for all you non-Mac users, today I have a similar program, but this one is only good for PCs. It’s called the Gmail Notifier and I know you’re not going to want to miss out on this one. Let’s check it out!
With the Gmail Notifier (which is a Firefox extension), you can monitor your Gmail e-mail account right through your Firefox Web browser. Just like with gCount, you can see how many unread e-mails you have waiting for you in your Inbox, etc. Also, once you install the extension, a new Gmail icon will be added to your taskbar and you can use that to check on your e-mail, as well as, customize the Notifier to meet your specific e-mail needs.
And that’s not even half of the exciting news! Gmail Notifier recently (in June 2007) came out with a new version (0.6) and with it, you can now monitor multiple Gmail accounts all at the same time. Yep, you heard me right! So, if you have more than one Gmail account or maybe you want to keep an eye on your child’s account, you can check both of them all at once. That way, you don’t have to keep logging in and out of the accounts all the time. You can just watch them all from one computer and be on your way. It’s so convenient and it just couldn’t be any easier to use. If you’re interested in getting the Gmail Notifier for yourself, you can download it right here. Now, go on and get it!
