View Full Version : GMail Counter - where to get it from????

Well it seems Microsoft has pulled support for Gadgets in Win7 from their website.

Pretty much every link I find to a gadget is pointed to the Microsoft page and is dead.

Trying to find "GMail Counter" gadget. It is just a red "G" on the desktop that displays unread messages in Gmail and plays a sound of your choice when you get new mail. Really useful as I don't keep my browser open all the time but still want to know when I get new mail.

I found a really old version of it - but it's a really old version of it!

Does anyone have it? Or know a site that is still hosting the latest version?

Thanks in advance!

Probably have to sign up with iGoogle. (http://www.google.com/ig) I also heard unofficially Google are ramping up Gmail, so might include similar gadgets.

I have Google Talk running and that has the mail announcer on it.
