As Google Wave continues to evolve one of the many complaints about Wave is there is no way to receive a notification when you have a new “blip” aka Google Wave message in general.

Chrome Extension – Google Wave Checker
Unofficial Google Wave Notifier for mac
Google Wave Notifier Beta for Windows
Google Wave Add-on for Firefox 0.0.3
Prism or Fluid or Wave Desktop App
