Firefox extension that allows user notifications
This extension allows webpages that have been pinned as app-tabs to get the user's attention. This happens in an OS-specific way; windows will 'flash' the taskbar item a few times and leave it 'blue' after that. Linux and MacOS X do similar things.
The user is notified in two instances:
- When the title of a page changes
- When the web application requests notification (using the introduced 'GetAttention' document event)
This means you will be notified of new mail in zarafa webaccess for example (since the title changes when you get new email)
Supports FF 9.0
Now has 'toaster' so new mail messages are display in an OS-specific way, on top of other applications.
