Sure, you knew there was a Gmail notifier extension for Firefox to let you know when you have new E-mails in your Gmail account. Did you know you could do the same thing with Yahoo’s mail? You can with the ymnotifier Firefox extension. Now I too can keep track of my Web-based E-mails!
You can set ymnotifier to check for new mail in your Yahoo account for any number of set minutes. By default it is set to check every five minutes for new E-mails. Personally, I have mine set for every fifteen minutes. You can select how it opens up as well depending on which key you hit on the mouse. The options for opening are in a new window, in a new tab or in the same tab you already have open.
You can also set it to show a icon in the status bar, display a pop up for new E-mail, display an alert with new E-mail, or play a sound when you get a new E-mail. I am really looking forward to seeing what else they can do with this extension in the future. The only thing I wish it had that it doesn’t right now is the ability to check my POP3 E-mail accounts from the extension as well, since I use Yahoo! Mail to manage those as well.
So check it out, and let me know how you like having your Yahoo! Mail right there at your fingertips!
