GSearch in GMail is GGreat

New in Google Labs is an add-on for having embedded web search in your email space- this means while composing a message, there is right in the mail interface a search form. The results appear in a GChat pop-up/overlay, and the results can be directly inserted into your message.

In this case, I am emailing my friend Cole a message, and need a URL for a site to share– I can search+find+insert all in the email composing window.

So this saves having to tab over to another window, run a search, copy/paste the URL (especially since the one in Google Search results does not point to the actual URL, but a Google ByPassSnagSomeINfo URL).

It’s Gggggggggreat!

If this kind of stuff has value, please support me by tossing a one time PayPal kibble or monthly on Patreon
