What is Gmail™ Notifier Plus and how does it work?
Gmail™ Notifier Plus has two main building blocks. There is a background script that checks Gmail's feed frequently to notify you about the number of unread emails you have in all your logged-in accounts. The script uses Gmail's RSS feeds to retrieve the number of unread emails for each account and hence it is very fast and efficient. The second building block of Gmail™ Notifier Plus is the panel user interface which allows users to check there emails directory from browser's toolbar. The toolbar panel is actually the original Gmail interface on mobile devices and hence it is very fast and lightweight compared to the desktop version. The interface allows you to read your emails, reply to senders, mark messages as read, report spams and even tag your emails.

A question from a user: Since you must be logged into Gmail for this notifier to work, doesn't that open up your email for potential "hacking incidences"?
Well, Gmail™ Notifier Plus does not accept user credential storage exactly to prevent this sort of leakage. Note that there is no real good solution on storing passwords by an add-on which is safer than what browser does itself. So there is no good explanation on saving credentials security-wise. Also by letting the add-on use browser session, you can always logout from Gmail or ask browser not to store passwords for your Google account.
What is the meaning of "Moved Temporarily. The document has moved here" and how can I fix this?
It means for some reason the extension stored a wrong URL for accessing mobile version of Gmail website. You need to reset extension's preferences to fix the issue. In Chrome, simply remove the extension and re-install it from the store. In Firefox, open "about:config" page in a new browser tab and search for
extensions.jid1-sqmEAwSoa3FZPc@jetpack.gmail-url. Save the current value and then right click over the preference and press the reset item. Please email me the value before resetting (or add the value in the comments section of this page) so that I can fix the problem for next releases.
Please keep reviews clean, avoid improper language, and do not post any personal information. Also, please consider sharing your valuable input on the official store.
