Inbox™ Notifier is a very interesting add-on for Firefox that lets you access Google Mail Inbox in a pop-up. Those who using the new Gmail app (Inbox) on their Android or iPhone devices, they must be happy as they can access Inbox in a pop up on their desktop.
Although you can access Inbox on the web by connecting your account (similar to how you access Whatsapp), but it can be accessed in a separate tab only, and you have to keep a tab reserved or open the tab again and again to access Inbox. Using this Firefox add-on, instead of opening Inbox in a tab, you can access it in a pop-up window. Moreover, you can also adjust the size of pop-up window.
Above you can see Google Mail Inbox accessed by me in a pop-up using this Firefox add-on.
Note: This add-on also lets you receive new email alerts as desktop notifications and shows the total number of new emails in its icon. However, both of these options didn’t work, but rest of the features worked really good for me.
