This is a discussion on Hotmail Notifier Extension within the Chrome Plugins section, part of the Google Chrome category: Gmail Notifier????? Hows about a Hotmail Notifier This neat little contraption goes 5 steps ahead of the Gmail Notifier Google ...
Gmail Notifier????? Hows about a Hotmail Notifier
This neat little contraption goes 5 steps ahead of the Gmail Notifier Google put out as a Sample Extension. Not only does it show if your inbox has any new messages, Click on the sweat little icon and a box will pop-up on the page (NOT a pop-up dialog) and present you with your folders in your Hotmail account highlighting any of the folders that have unread emails in them, just like mail.live.com !!! Except click on a folder.... And that folder opens up in a new window.
Current Version: 6.3
Download Link: https://dl.getdropbox.com/u/1703837/Hotmail.crx
Browser Compatibility : 126.96.36.199 or Later
* Displays Unread emails in the inbox on the toolstrip
* Clicking the Extension on the toolstrip opens up a popup window with a list of Folders in your Account
* Clicking a folder in the popup causes that folder to open in a new chrome window
PLEASE NOTE: This extension is now only supported via Issue tickets Here. Any Problems posted here have 99% chance of not being read.
Issues Fixed in latest release:
* Fixed the Popup UI issue when opened, but before folders are shown, replaced with loading screen. [r7]
* Made the Folder View have a smaller minimum Width as per harrispo's request. will still expand according to folder size if it is greater than the min-size of the folder container. [r8]
* Made the first run of the extension quicker, and fixed the IFrame non-sense bug (It the extension never worked after ver 4 and before 6.3) you probably encountered this. [r10][r14][r15]
* Cleaned up the Trunk at Google Code, no Fixes. [r11][r12]
Please report all bugs Here.
If Windows Live Mail DOES NOT LOAD in Chrome (as well as my extension) you will need to add *.live.com to IE's Trusted Sites list in IE settings for Windows Live Mail and my extension to work
In order to get it to work, you first have to log on to Hotmail in Google Chrome.
The extension will most probably ONLY work if you have login set to automatic for Hotmail.
Copyright Info: The Design of the Extension GUI Is mine only, you can have the code, but DO NOT make one that looks exactly like mine and post it up as your own I WILL BE SO PISSED

I don't use hotmail anymore but any chance of a screen shot?
I have updated the download to version 5, so the Close Me Button will be fixed.
Please note that if you are still having troubles clicking the close me button, you can click the title bar of the popup box and it will close the popup box for you.
Regarding Nandayo's Problem: I have fixed the problem in the 5.1 release. The way that I collect the information has several different ways. and depending on your account, the one I use might not wirk, but it's been fixed
PLEASE REMEMBER: The extension will only work if you are either logged into Hotmail, or you have Hotmail on Auto-login (Remember your Username and Password).
I will be enhancing the Popup Box timing issues but please remember that Extensions have not been officially released to Chrome yet, they are still in development.
Other than that, I am constantly updating my chrome version off the Chrome Dev BuildBot Here: http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/c...us/win/LATEST/. The Version of Chrome this should work on is 188.8.131.52 As that is what version I have been building it for.
Please give me some feedback, it is much appreciated and I do make changes based on opinions and feedback.
Once this is stable enough I will start to make one for Gmail and Yahoo which will look similar to the Hotmail one.

Dev Chrome is 184.108.40.206; Chromium is 220.127.116.11
Well, My bad. But you really don't need to correct me as the buildbot releases are technically all dev versions. (Just have a look for yourself in the About:version page). and calling it just Chromium might confuse people.
Chromium 18.104.22.168 (Developer Build 23106)
User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/532.0 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/22.214.171.124 Safari/532.0
it is interesting to note that this is the first extension to be developed for Chromium specifically though
