New Features from Google Labs

As part of a continuing “series” of posts, here are some of the recent feature enhancements for Gmail from the teams at Google Labs.

  • Title Tweaks — Changes the order of the browser title and tab title so that “Inbox (xx)” is first. This lets you see the number of unread items in your inbox when using another tab and when the window is minimized.
  • Multiple Inboxes — Add lists of emails in your inbox to see even more important email at once. The new lists of threads can be labels, your starred messages, drafts or any search you want, configurable under Settings.

To use these features, your administrator must allow access to Labs. Go into Labs and click on “Enable”.
