Gmail Labs unveiled three new projects today, on the official Gmail Blog. Gmail Labs has been around for some time now, giving previews of upcoming features to Gmail, be they mouse controlled gestures or a good ol’ fashioned game of Snake.
The new features released are designed to enhance the functionality of mail labels. For example you can now rearrange the order of your left hand pane to your liking. Everything below the folder view is interchangeable giving you options to customize your mailbox view. Just drag and drop the contents as you like, and remove those annoying little boxes from your sights.
Another cool new feature is the ability to search through labels using keyboard shortcuts. Pressing ‘g’ followed by ‘l’ will trigger the Goto Label shortcut and you can then start typing the name of the label you want to go to, in the pop up box. And you now also have the option to set any color combination for the label by using a handy palette of colors. Not like you need a wide variety of colors as there were already plenty to choose from.
Checkout the official blog for more information, or if you are a Gmail user, then try them out yourself.
