Gmail Manager

No longer using this. Switched to better suiting alternative. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have switched to GMail Checker (currently 2.6.1 by Trinh Nguyen).

These are the differences that made me switch:
- The GMail Manager does not offer a single icon (with total new-mail-count for all accounts),
- GMail Manager is more work to set up (it has many options per account),
- GMail Manager does not work immediately in FF9.x,
- GMail Manager does not offer a single left-click access to the menu with all accounts,
- GMail Manager does not offer snippets for all accounts in the menu with all accounts.

GMail Checker on the other hand, does offer all this, and I thought perhaps other might mind the comparison useful.

GMail Checker

Best of the multiple gmail account checkers. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just got a new laptop and tried again all multiple-Gmail-account checkers, because I did not remember which one I had before. It was this one and that was easy to figure out, I had problems with the other ones (e.g. gmail manager) immediately. This is still by far the best one.

- Simple and fast to set up
- Works immediately in FF9.x
- Intuitive to use
- Single icon for all acounts which I LOVE
- Direct left-click access to an overview of all my accounts (right-click is a hassle on the touchpad)

Not one of the competitors offers this.
Thank you so much!

New Tab Homepage

Focus on addres-bar made me switch to My Homepage add-on. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Alas. I have used this extension for as long as it has been around, but the fact that it leaves focus on the address-bar rather than moving focus to the search-bar of my homepage, has finally made me abandon it.

I am now using My Homepage, which works admirably, also on FF 7.

My Homepage

Preferable to New Tab Homepage. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In one word: perfect.
- Preferable to New Tab Homepage because My Homepage sets focus to the search-bar if Google is your homepage, in stead of leaving focus on the address-bar.
- Works on Firefox 7.

I have used New Tab Homepage for as long as it has existed, but have now switched to My Homepage and am happy about it.

GMail Checker

Best of all alternatives! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect! Intuitive, does not try to do too much, always works, shows snippets... need I go on? I was using the gmail manager addon for a long time, and I have also tried the gmail notifier recently, but this addon is simply the best one in the category! I hope more people discover it and appreciate it. I also hope it will keep its simplicity :-)
Thank you very much for creating this, you have made my firefox/mail-life pleasant again!

X-notifier (for Gmail,Hotmail,Yahoo,AOL ...)

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Still: broken in win7?
I tried the new 1.5.5. version. Formerly I reported that I was unable to save any preferences under win7 / firefox 3.5.4 / notifier 1.5.4 (after adding a mailaccount the preferences window cannot be closed: nothing happens on "ok"). With notifier version 1.5.5 this problem remains. I have win7 in 64bit. Might that be the problem? And a BIG thank you to the developer for the effort and the replies!

X-notifier (for Gmail,Hotmail,Yahoo,AOL ...)

works now in win7 for me Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Formerly I posted I could not save the preferences. This was using win7 64bit, firefox 3.5.4. and notifier 1.5.4. I now have the notifier 2.0.1 version and it works! Thank you!!
