Google Wave Add-on for Firefox Alerts You to Unread Wavelets

Google Wave has been making quite a splash. Only time will tell if Wave really has what it takes to change the way we communicate. But, people are certainly anxious to try it out. Wave invitations have been in great demand ever since its launch. So, it’s no wonder that someone has already developed a Firefox extension for Wave.


Google Wave Add-on for Firefox is a simple extension, which automatically checks your Wave account at a specified interval of time and notifies you if there are any unread wavelets. It sits quietly in the right hand corner of Firefox’s status bar and displays the number of currently unread wavelets. You can also get a quick preview of unread wavelets by hovering the mouse pointer over the status bar icon.


Techie Buzz Verdict

One of the major complaints against Wave has been that it is incredibly heavy. Having Wave always open in a background tab is a prospect that most users don’t relish. Google Wave Notifier allows you to close Google Wave when not required without missing out on any of the action.

Techie Buzz Verdict: 3/5 (Good)
