Gmail Adds New Custom Title Bar Labs Feature

Following its day of nonstop downtime coverage, Google is releasing some slightly less negative news this Wednesday: a new Gmail Labs feature that lets you customize the browser title bar.

The option, now available in the Gmail Labs menu, lets you choose to place your inbox count before the word "Gmail" in the browser bar. That way, you can see how many new messages you have at a quick glance on a toolbar or inactive tab.

A handy little feature--though one already familiar to users of Gina Trapani's Better Gmail Firefox extension, which has offered the option for quite some time.
