Google Gmail Notifier for Mac Brings Gmail to the Menu Bar
Gmail is arguably the best web based mail client, featuring a clean no nonsense interface and a monstrously large mailbox size hovering right under 3gb currently, you really never have to delete emails ever again.
Google Notifier brings Gmail to your Mac’s desktop by putting a convenient icon in the menu bar that alerts you to new mail messages, and like Gmail, it is unobtrusive and simple.
The icon is red if you have new mail, gray if you don’t.
It’s a small and free download and makes a great desktop addition for Mac Gmail users.
Google Notifier also brings with it a calender notifier, I don’t care to use it but thankfully it’s easily turned off and won’t harass you again.
Here is what Google Notifier will look like in your menu bar:
You can get Gmail Notifier from Google directly.
In a related tip, you can also use Gmail when you click on a web mailto link.
