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 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=577096 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.
