Javascript Question

How do you put the blue dot on pinned Chrome tabs?

Certain google sites such as GMail, Google Voice, and others show a little blue dot when they update in the background (when the window doesn't have focus). This is definitely done through a JavaScript API. I've seen at least one other website ( do it as well.

How do you make this happen in JavaScript?

If you aren't entirely sure what I'm talking about, here is an image:

Apparently tabs flash automatically when you change the title, this does not work for pinned tabs however.


Oh wait, it does work for pinned tabs, but not apps.
