Woah, am I feeling a little tension in here? :D

The release is sweet though, this has often been a complaint for me when I have, as I often do, a large number of tabs open.

Should be default settings for everyone.

This is great! I requested this feature when I first started using Gmail. Glad to see they finally implemented it.

I still kinda like how Yahoo Mail says the number first encase you have too many tabs open...

"(3 unread) Yahoo! Mail, email_username_here"

But this is a great improvement for Gmail in my opinion – It's simple but it's helpful.

Above 6 comments were made in the forum before this was blogged,

I wish they would always put the new lab features at the top.

Maybe they need a lab feature to re-order the lab features.

This has been achievable with Greasemonkey script, and I'm surprised they provided absolutely no configuration options. Personally, I like to squelch my email address from the title altogether, and I'd love for that to happen automatically.

Hopefully the "Title Tweaks" will become more than just technically pluralized, offering a sort of tokenization where I can provide a configuration string like "(<Unread Count>) – <Location> – <Service>".

This is even better for mail in Google Apps account, where the company name is a lot longer than just "Gmail", and the counter would never show up..
This also makes the counter readable on the Windows task bar..
I really like this..

I agree. I just wish this was enabled by default, so I wouldn't have to login to each Google Apps user account and turn this on for them....

Awesome... thanks for the heads up... this has been a pet peeve of mine for a long time! ;)
