Notice something acting a little weird with Firefox? Might be about time you did a plugin check. Depending on what version of Firefox and the various plugins you are running, you could run into problems.

Are you a webmail addict?
Maybe you share a browser between family members, and you both use different webmail clients? No matter the reason you need to use it – one thing is for sure. This plugin is one of the best to make sure you stay up to date with your latest e-mails.
You can also use multiple accounts in a same host. The Web Mail Notifier currently supports:
- mail.google.com(Gmail & Google Apps)
- mail.yahoo.com (yahoo.com, ymail.com, rocketmail.com, yahoo.co.jp)
- mail.live.com(hotmail.com, msn.com, live.com)
- www.nate.com(nate.com, empas.com)
- and more!
You can pick up the Web Mail Notifier add-on on the Mozilla Add-ons web site. By far one of the best webmail tools for Firefox.

You need something that watches the Web site in question for changes, and lets you know about it.
