I am using Google Gears to use Gmail as an offline e-mail client and have the icon pinned to my (Windows 7) start bar.

I've recently seen a screenshot of someone also displaying the unread e-mails count in this icon, but I cannot remember where I saw it and how it is done.

Any ideas?

It is done with the free program Windows 7 Gmail Notifier Plus.
