Unread Count Icon in Gmail

Ever wished you could see, at a glance, your unread email count when you have dozens of tabs open in your browser? Look no further! You can now choose to have a customized unread message count icon in Gmail.

This allows you to quickly see how many unread messages you have - even with a cluttered tab bar.

As always, this experimental feature is available via Gmail Labs - which, thanks to its new and improved search box - can easily be found by starting to type Unread message icon.

For me, it won't be that helpful, as I usually keep several dozen "unread" emails in my inbox as reminders of what I need to do... and the icon just shows "20+". But for people with cleaner Gmail inboxes, I'm sure it will be quite useful.
