Gmail Notifier Plus is an improved version of Gmail Notifier which has been developed from scratch by Baptise Girod. The basic purpose remains the same – alerting you whenever you have a new message. However, what sets Gmail Notifier Plus a part from the official Gmail Notifier is its tight integration with Windows 7.
Gmail Notifier Plus is portable software and doesn’t require any installation. The focus during development was clearly on simplicity and utility. Gmail Notifier works entirely from the Windows 7 Superbar (Taskbar). Hovering over the Gmail Notifier button reveals a thumbnail preview of your messages. Right clicking exposes the Jumplist which contains latest messages as well as common tasks like composing a mail and opening the inbox.
Gmail Notifier Plus supports multiple Gmail accounts and does its job brilliantly. It’s designed to remain out of your way. The only Window that you are going to come across while using Gmail Notifier is the Configuration Window. Everything else is done directly from the taskbar.
