Update: I found a better browser so I am no longer supporting this add-on.
I recommend the official Google Wave notifier instead.
Google probably isn’t going to be happy about this, but I present to you the first ever Google Wave Notifier… for Firefox.
This add-on reuses code from my other add-on, the Google Voice Add-on for Firefox (I’m great with names).
If you have a Google Wave account, enter your login and password in the settings and it will log you in and notify you of new wavelets in your inbox.
Let me know if you encounter bugs. Enjoy.
In this release:
- Changed “Incompatible Browser” error to “Cookies Blocked”
- Third-party cookies need to be enabled for wave.google.com (this fixes the issue people were having with Firefox 3.5.3 and 3.7)
- Addon sends custom user-agent per Google Wave Team’s request
- Limits automatic inbox checking to a minimum of 5 minutes
- Now only attempts to check the inbox if you are logged in
Planned for the next release: See note above
- Sandboxed HTTP connection for safer third-party cookies
“Cookies Blocked” issue: If third-party cookies are blocked for all sites, an exception will have to be added for wave.google.com.
This is done by going to Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Firefox will: Use custom settings for history -> Exceptions -> wave.google.com -> Allow.
This notifier is for regular Google Wave accounts, so Sandbox accounts will not work. If you would like to use it in Sandbox, let me know and I will upload that version as well.
As of this time you will not automatically receive notifications of updates to the addon, so check this page regularly or follow me on twitter to be notified of new versions.
