Summary:

GMail Status app came out before the GMail Notifier which adds header-preview. Still, an acknowledgement from Google that us Mac users exist!

  1. I’ve tried the Mac OS X version of this, and it makes no sense to me. It seems to run invisibly, and make a sound occasionally, but it doesn’t show in the dock in any way, and it doesn’t seem to have any preferences that you can set. Am I missing something here?

  3. I’m on Linux, so we still don’t exist. Thank you Gmail Notifier extension for Firefox!

  4. Gmail Notifier works fine for me. From the description I thought it was going to put itself in the dock but it actually works very much like Gmail Status, except with the added benefit of the header previews. I would have stuck with Gmail Status but mysteriously it stopped being able to retrieve the number of unread mails I had.
