Gmail notifier for Windows 7 is a utility that is non-dependant of the browser and notifies you with the new mails in your gmail inbox and lets you enjoy with more options of Gmail independently in Windows 7.
It not only allows you to have the mail count, but also the mail previews from the taskbar, also when the mails are opened from the inbox, you are automatically logged into the browser version of Gmail. It is using Gmail secured RSS feed to retrieve the mails so it should be pretty safe. Credentials are saved using a machine’s dependent encryption.
Clicking on any mail would open it in Gmail, and the software is compatible with Windows 7 OS. Moreover, this tool does not come in the list of Alt + Tab windows, but sits just beside the Windows icon between the shortcut icons.
