Gmail Labs

If you look at the top of the screen in your Gmail account, there should be a little green beaker icon. Clicking on this will take you to Gmail Labs, a testing ground for fun and useful experimental features in Gmail. Some of my favorites include:

  • Adding Google Calendar or Docs widgets to your Gmail window
  • Changing your Send button to a Send & Archive button
  • Enabling Picasa and Flickr photo previews in your Gmail
