Let browser icon flash in taskbar when browser not focused ...

How can I let the browser icon/button blink in the taskbar to alert a
user that (f.e.) he has an new message when his browser-window is not
focused or minimized??

Working with a flash-movie with a sound is not an option, neither is a
alert() or confirm() ...

Thanks!!
