comment Chrome: switch tabs with exactly one key?
Nope. The plugins that I use in Safari and Firefox simply ignore the keystroke if you're in a text field. And can you be more specific by “not how Chrome currently works”? Is there any reason plugins couldn't simply check the originalTarget of the key press event to determine if it's an input?

Err, actually fixed link. But it's dead, so kind of a moot point.

D'oh! I'd previously looked at lame, but for some reason I'd assumed that it only accepted WAV files. Thanks.

comment Gmail push new mail notifications to Linux?
Yuval: yea, alfplayer is right. Gmail does push notifications, both to IMAP and when you're in the web interface.

Ah, thanks – this one does support push notifications… But, alas (and this is my fault, I'm sorry) I didn't make it clear that I wanted an X11-free app.

That does look nice, but unfortunately it uses polling, not server-push, too.

As alfpayer said, all of these (including, as far as I can tell, checkgmail) are polling not push based.
