Let's say I have 10 new messages. The inbox icon lights up with "10". Now, when I click into the inbox to read the first message, this lighting disappears. I have to manually keep track of how many I've read, because it doesn't show me unread messages separately. Can this please be fixed? It should show all unread messages marked clearly.
I agree with this as well, it seems like a rather useful feature to have. And I've fallen afoul of this a few times before -- I don't notice some inbox messages.
My workaround is to just open all the inbox messages in new tabs, give them a precursory glance and deal with them one by one, closing tabs.
Or, you can just use this Chrome Extension that does the checking for you:)
