[b²] Gmail Notifier

[b²] Gmail Notifier is a freeware Animated Gmail Notifier for Windows, MacOS and Linux - it's based on Adobe AIR technology - with cool animations that will notify you about new email messages. These animations (which you can change depending on your liking) appear when you receive new emails in your inbox. The software is designed to be easy to understand, and use.

It is as simple as an email notifer can get. All you have to do is enter your Gmail username and password, and login. The notifer sits quietly in the system tray and keeps checking your account for new mails at set interval which can be adjusted by the user.

[b²] Gmail Notifier comes with 4 built-in animations and 2 more downloadable from it's website.

While the application may look like it was made for kids, the default animation is quite usable, showing you the title and excerpt from the emails you receive (like you can see in the screenshot).
