Realy nice ... i have it installed now and it works like a charm. Thanks Andy. :)

Great Add on. I have just installed it and it works as announced.

I guess what this does is change the title of the page to add a (1) or the number of alerts. Would you consider making it toggle between (1) Page Tilte – Page Title

Something like this:
I think this will be a nice option, but not the default setting. Not everyone likes this ... ;)

Good morning....

A question - can the "(x)" be colored? Or can only the Favicon in the tab blink, when the notice count change?

Great idea, would be terrific to have. BUT, can I suggest the flashing for new conversations, and current functionality for alerts.

This is an excellent plugin. However, upon update - I noticed this no longer works unless there's some kind of backend enable/disable I'm not seeing?

Also, just a question that some of my members asked, could it be possible a sound feature along with the tab alert be implemented? Basically how Facebook has where someone sends you a message or you get an alert, you'll hear the sound. Maybe if you choose to do this, you could implement an option to enable/disable it?

Thanks for the update. I fixed my above issue by uninstalling the plugin, removing the TabAlerts folder in /library/Andy/ and then reinstalling it over again.
