Meebo message minder

Get notified of new Meebo messages with this extension for Chrome.

Meebo is a social networking site that supports a variety of different chat services and lets users share content from all over the Web. If you need a quick and easy way to see when you have new Meebo messages, try Meebo Notifier. This Google Chrome extension is easy to see but unobtrusive, ensuring that you know when a new message arrives without a lot of fuss or distraction.

The extension installs easily and, like other Chrome extensions, appears to the right of the address bar as a small icon. We logged into Meebo in a tab in Chrome and then started chatting with someone. Meebo Notifier displayed quick previews of each of our friend's messages, and we loved that these appeared on top of whatever application was currently active. For example, as we were typing this review, a Meebo Notifier message appeared on top of Microsoft Word. This is a very handy feature to have, especially if you're using Meebo in an environment in which you don't have speakers or need to keep your volume off. However, we do wish that the extension let users set the length of time for the previews; as it is they flash just quickly enough for you to maybe see who they're from. However, users can click on the icon to see a list of messages, and clicking on a message takes users to the conversation within Meebo. The extension doesn't have much in the way of settings; it lets users save their login information, log into Meebo automatically, and log in using https. Overall, Meebo Notifier doesn't do a whole lot, but it's not a bad choice if you're looking for a way to make Meebo messages a little more obvious.

Meebo Notifier installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this extension to all users.
