I always have Gmail open in an app tab and this extension lets me use its desktop notifications feature to let me know when an important e-mail arrives. I'd rather keep the number of background programs to a minimum, and not sacrifice screen real estate, so this is what suits me best.
It does have its quirks - sometimes the notification freezes when it drops back. Might have something to do with having Windows' taskbar docked to the right edge of the screen.
This may be a temporary solution until Firefox devs implement it in the browser, but it is critical to me.
