Add-on: Gmail Manager 0.6

If you have more than one Gmail account (and for some reason you don't feel like funneling them all into a single account), you're probably sick of signing in and out of each account just to see whether you have new mail at each address.

Gmail Manager 0.6, a Firefox add-on that inserts an unobtrusive icon on the right side of the status bar (in the lower right corner), lets you can simultaneously check all of your mail accounts. To add accounts, right-click the icon, select Options, Accounts, and click the Add… button.

Each account you add will have its own little icon, mail count, and alias (you can assign aliases when you add accounts) in the status bar. Gmail Manager 0.6 periodically checks each account for new mail; clicking an icon will take you to that Gmail account. The best part: It will automatically log you on and off (assuming that you save your passwords), which means no more Gmail login/logout hassle!
