Yes, for three things.

First, when Gmail Notifier starts it reads a settings file that relates to the application behavior (this is because Gmail might change things in the future. There is no reason to expose this to the user).

Second, to download version updates (will be installed only if user choosed to).

Third, to track usage statistics.
