Growl is a utility that, like the drunkenbatman
, has become a necessity in my
daily work. As far as email is concerned, even though I can't bring myself to ditch Mail.app and Address Book
completely due to device
, Gmail has certainly found its place in my daily tool-belt as well. To my delight, the email
notification utility by the name of Gmail Growl (which we've covered before
) has been updated with a slick
feature: the ability to click on a Growl message notification to be taken to that specific Gmail message in your
favorite browser. The nice part about this is that you can specify which browser to use; you aren't simply limited to
the system's default browser - handy, when you consider the fact that Firefox supports all the rich text editing
options Gmail has to offer, while Safari is still lagging behind (disclaimer: I don't know if that's a WebKit or a
Gmail issue, so don't flame me).
Gmail Growl can be had, for free, at the author's site
. As usual with great freeware like this, I encourage
you to make a donation to help keep great utilities like this alive.
