Feature to show new msg count in title?

Recommended Posts

I use SC's webmail heavily, and usually have it open on my computer. The browser refreshes itself periodically to notice new mail as directed by the webmail feature. I have tried the webmail option that opens a java scri_pt dialog when it notices new mail but find that really annoying.

Instead, I'd like to suggest a modest new feature: optionally show the count of new messages in the page title. With this feature turned on, the title "Mail :: INBOX" would instead be "Mail :: INBOX [3 New]". If no new mail is there, it could either show "0 New" or simply leave it off entirely.

Please consider it, and thanks for listening.

Due to truncation issues like single-character tasks on crowded taskbars in Windows, perhaps "3 New : INBOX : Webmail" or "New Mail :: INBOX [3]" would be better.

This idea looks eminently reasonable and would provide extra utility.
