#46 Should become useful when idle

I have wrote this before. The taskbar icon needs to become something useful, something people want to have even if they are not using mozilla. For example:

- Users should be notified visually about a new email, moreover about a new email from which account. (There might be an option about which email accounts should be used in taskbar alert).

- This one is related mostly with netscape. AOL instant messenger alerts. I want to see them. I want to be connected to AIM and I want to be alerted when there is new buddy online, etc.

- I want to be notified if a webpage is updated. For example slashdot's main page. So I need to be able to register some websites to be hecked for updates and I need a not-so-disturbing alert for this.

Once you transform the taskbar icon into something useful, then nobody will complain about how much memory it takes and all...
