I usually don’t like using add-ons. I find them intrusive and are not of much use – for me at least. But this tiny add-on has somehow managed to stay in my Firefox . Gmail Notifier is a Firefox add-on which will notify about incoming mails. Well, I agree there are already too many of them. But there is something different about this one.
When others just notify you of the new email, this one not only previews the email in a tiny box but also allows you to simply Mark as read, report spam, trash or archive the message. How much of your time would be saved every day? You can simply delete those “not so useful mails” with two mouse clicks without having to switch between multiple tabs.
It also supports multiple accounts and label based notifications. To know more about label based notifications, follow this link.
1. Multiple account support
2. Multiple label support
3. Low bandwidth usage by using RSS technology
4. Mark as read, report span, trash or archive messages right from Firefox toolbar
This might not be of much use for everyone, but those who rely heavily on Gmail for office work or other important communication and need to continuously monitor their mail account, this one would save a lot of time. To get this add-on, click on the Add to Firefox button below.
