Google Labs Integrated with Gmail

Google opened Gmail to further user modification by allowing users to integrate Google Gadgets in Gmail’s navigation bar.  Some gadgets I found useful/addictive are listed below

1. Quicklinks –  Adds a box to the left column that gives you 1-click access to any bookmarkable URL in Gmail.

2. Old Snakey – Kick it old school with Old Snakey! Enable keyboard shortcuts and hit ‘&’ from the main page to play a game of snake.

3. Default ‘Reply to all’ –  Make ‘Reply to all’ your default option for responding to emails.

4. Mail Goggles – Google strives to make the world’s information useful. Mail you send late night on the weekends may be useful but you may regret it the next morning. Solve some simple math problems and you’re good to go. Otherwise, get a good night’s sleep and try again in the morning. After enabling this feature, you can adjust the schedule in the “General” settings page

5. Forgotten Attachment Detector – Prevents you from accidentally sending messages without the relevant attachments. Prompts you if you mention attaching a file, but forgot to do so.

6.  Google Docs gadget –  dds a box in the left column which displays your Google Docs. Shows recent docs, starred docs, and has fast search

6. Add any gadget by URL – Adds a “Gadgets” tab to Settings, where you’ll be able to specify the URL of any gadget. This gadget will show in a box in the left column.

In order to enable mentioned features , click on settings>labs.
