Gmail Improvements

Nothing at all

Just noticed that Gmail has added some new features. There’s now an official Windows notifier (come on, add official web browser integration too!) and a much improved (and searchable) contacts section. They’ve also introduced the ability to forward email on to another address. The wording of that announcement is kind of interesting though.

We’re testing a new feature that lets you forward new incoming messages to any email account you want. It’s free during the test…

Could that be the great free, ad revenue reliant Google hinting that something might end up not so free?

The final feature is the one I’m most pleased about—it’s now possible to save drafts. I filed a request for that almost as soon as I got the account (way back shortly after Gmail’s launch) but all I ever got back was a standard email. It’s a feature I’ve sincerely wished for several times. Good to see it introduced, at last.
