Is there some gmail / firefox / greasemonkey plugin, that enables in gmail a notify option, kinda like in IRC ?

To for example, bleeeps, when someone comes online.

I'll gladly consider all other options as well.

I use a combo of Growl on a Mac with Firefox with the Yip extension plus greasemonkey plus a userscript to fire the notification when new emails come in.

Seems that there is another userscript that works with Growl for Windows - you could try that?
