Gmail Cracks Down on Third-Party Notifiers

Gmail Cracks Down on Third-Party Notifiers: “Recently, Google’s gmail service has attempted to change login protocols to block third-party gmail notifiers that alert you to new email. Google has now taken it one step further and created a word-identification script filter as part of the login process. Personally, I find Google’s gmail notifier annoying since it sits in my taskbar and doesn’t have popup notification, unlike many other worthy Firefox or Mozilla plugins that feature gmail notification. Shouldn’t I be free to use whatever third party software to check my email? Will we be seeing controls on browsers that can view gmail next?”
