And Now For Something Completely Different

December 8th, 2009 · 6 Comments · Google Chrome Extensions

The Google Chrome team just pushed a beta build with extensions enabled for Windows and Linux, and my extension is getting some attention! 🙂

Take a look.

Bonus for reading more:  My TODO list:

– Google Apps Domain for Wave: https://wave.google..com/a/<yourdomain.com>/
– Check official GVoice Notifier extension to see how it behaves and compare with mine.
– Option to check all messages, not just inbox? (GMail, GVoice, GWave)
– 27487 – XHR never finishes on 401.  Doesn’t seem possible to fix, it acts like it’s still loading until it times out.
– 27637 – no favicon for my option page

    Hi,

    I’m using your Chrome extension and it’s really useful. Great job. Thanks!

    Just want to suggest that it will be nice if the options can be saved in a different way so it will still persist even after deleting cookies.

    Some people use Chrome browser in office and clears all browsing data when leaving.

    Great extension !

    One small bug I have:
    I have 2 gmail account, one is a Google Apps domain and one is regular gmail.
    I configured your extension to check my Google Apps domain gmail account, and my wave account (a regular one). It works fine, except that, the open unread messages opens my regular gmail and not my app one.

    Would be also nice to check mutilple gmail accounts !

    Would love an “add-a-link” option to put G-calendar and alternate emails in the list.

    Can i have a suggestion?It’s better to change icon on top bar from Google reader to Gmail. or we can customized. Because i think it’s more important to know if there are any new emails than how many unread article from Google reader. Then i don’t have to click that to check if i get any new email.

    CDS: The icon displayed reflects which items have messages. If you have GMail messages there will be a GMail icon up there. 🙂

    3Simplex: I have been thinking about Google Calendar support, I may implement it in 1.2.

    Charli: I believe I have fixed the Apps Domain problem in 1.1. To do multiple domains/normal gmail I will have to change the UI a bit but it is doable, I will put it on my TODO list. 🙂

    “it”: Google Chrome recommends extensions save data across sessions using Local Storage, this is the method I am using. If you clear out Local Storage (I guess it’s included with cookies) you are going to lose your settings, period, no way around it. Well I could store settings in “the cloud” but I know that I personally wouldn’t want to use an extension that didn’t NEED to store settings in the cloud but did anyway…

    Hey, I’ve been using One Number for a while now. It’s great, the only bug I find is that on OS X it pops up when it takes the unread count from n to 0. It would be cool if it didn’t do this, and if there was a setting to stop the pop ups automatically. (So I can click the icon, see the pop up, then take action, or have it so that it always pops up when there’s something unread.)
