View Unread Gmail Messages On Your Chrome Toolbar

Geek Tip: View Unread Gmail Messages on the Chrome Toolbar

It just became the third most popular Web browser, and now Chrome is even more customizable. A new Chrome extension allows you to view the number of unread messages in your Gmail inbox. Think of Chrome extensions as apps for your browser, or small shortcuts that allow you to access content or receive new information quickly. The Gmail extension adds a small icon to the right of the address bar in Chrome, displaying the number of unread messages. You can also access your inbox by clicking on the icon.

Chrome extensions are currently available for Windows users only; though Google says that extensions are coming to the Mac version of Chrome soon. To download the Gmail extension — and more than 2,000 others — visit the extensions gallery.

I've just started using Chrome as my regular browser this week and an weeding my way through lists of extensions, but I prefer the third party Google Mail Checker Plus extension to the official Google one. It's got a few more configuration options, including the ability to check all folders and not just the inbox one: https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/gffjhibehnempbkeheiccaincokdjbfe That's perfect for when you have filters set up to channel email to other folders.
