Meet the Unread Gmail Favicon Developer

Why was Unread Gmail Favicon created?

Firefox 4 features "App Tabs" which are very useful, but the narrower width hides some of the title information that used to indicate whether or not there are unread messages. We needed a way to "badge" the favicon in certain tabs to surface that information to the user. Until gets fixed, this Jetpack should be a sufficient substitute.

What's next for Unread Gmail Favicon

I will be adding support for Google Reader as well as Desktop Notifications for new Gmail messages.
