Sadly, Google just announced this will be killed.

This not version 1.10.4 NOT 1.10.7, as labeled. Moreover, the download on the Google download site doesn't work. (It displays a message thanking me for downloading, but nothing is actually downloaded.) I'm seeing weekly failures of Google Notifier to access my POP accounts on other servers. This started happening after I started using the 2-step security recommended by Google, although I don't know if that is the reason.)

Use this with generally no day-to-day problems. However, two problems I've noticed: occasionally icon remains red (indicating mail waiting) after login even though no mail is waiting; and it writes a huge amount to the Console, including the full headers etc. of every email that it notifies you of. This last really needs to be fixed.

My two cents; Google Notifier 1.10.4.676 as posted in Macupdate it is not the latest version: 1.10.6.879 is.
It can be DL from http://toolbar.google.com/gmail-helper/notifier_mac.html
Please note the release date of 1.10.6.879 though: August 18, 2006.
It works fine on a MacBook Pro with Mac OS X 10.6.3 as of April 19, 2010. Kind regards, MP

Is development for this app just completely dead or what?

While I prefer this to other solutions I've seen in some ways I still use alternatives if only because (1) they support multiple accounts—I have four—and (2) this has no support for Growl, something I find extremely surprising.

This plugin for Google Notifier addresses your concerns about it not using Growl:

I like this app, but recently my Google Notifier quits by it self. It just disappears from the menubar.

Also, it's to bad that it doesn't check every minute anymore. Sometime it takes 10 minutes before it checks...kinda ridiculous.

Hold down Command and Option, and pick Preferences from the menu. You'll be presented with a Preference dialog with two fields. In the first, type "AutocheckInterval" (with that specific capitalization). In the second, type "1". It now will check every minute.

as has been mentioned by others, this really needs a few more options in its preferences window. i'm kind of confused why google didn't provide more choices. i personally don't need my notifier to check every minute, or every 5 minutes for that matter, and yet there's no apparent way to choose the time between checks. i also had frequent problems with the notifier glitching out, weird problems with the email checks failing and never starting back up, etc. its a great utility to have, i just hope google puts a little more polish onto this.

BEWARE!!!

This version checks for mail every 5 minutes as opposed to every minute in the previous version. It would have been better if the developer had given us the option in Preferences to choose the interval like in Apple Mail.

... apart from the above, I cannot see any difference between the two versions.

See Jonnygozy's post in this thread to change notifier AutoCheck Frequency. Worked for me.

Thank you, Samadore, I have read it. Basically, what he says is: click the application icon in the menu bar to open the pull down menu, Command-Option click on "Preferences" and a window entitled "Defaults Editor" will open. Type "AutocheckInterval" in the Key field (case sensitive) and the number of minutes of how often you want it checked in the Value field. Click set and relaunch the application. I'm not going to try this, however, because I haven't found any other difference between this new version and the previous one and so I'm going to stick with the older one. For those of you who discarded the previous version, though, this is the remedy.

I agree. I don't see any other differences between the two.

Thanks to JonnyGozy:
I think I've figure out a solution for this problem. If you click on
the mail icon, then hold down command and option keys while clicking
on preferences in the drop down box, you will be prompted with a box
that has a key and value prompt. Type "AutocheckInterval" under key
(this seems to be case-sensitive) and then under value type in the
number in minutes of how often you want it checked. You will need to
quit out of the notifier (again found in the drop down box under the
mail icon) and then run the app again for your change to take effect.
I typed in 1 and it is checking every minute or so now for me. I hope
this works for everyone else too.
