How about a (optional) beep notification when a new request or response comes into the system?
We’ve looked at this in the past, but including sound can cause odd situations in the browser and in some cases even make the browser crash. It’s on the list though if we find a way we think is acceptable.
How about an option to popup a little disappearing notification window in the lower right hand part of the screen like yahoo does?
Do you mean in the browser window or on your desktop? Version 2 of HelpSpot has an API that would make building a desktop notifier possible. I could see someone in the community adding someting like this, though we don’t have plans to build it in house at this time.
That might do the trick.
