Gmail gets more productive with Google Search Box

Gmail Lab is the hub of incremental innovation and the newly launched module (rather, the improved version) of  Google search box makes Gmail a lot more productive and collaborative tool.

Once you enable the module, you can search Google from your Gmail – the real fun begins once you fire a query.

Gmail will open a new window (overlay) displaying the search result. Hover on any of the result and the dropdown will enable you to share the search result/URLs within the mail itself.


Typical use case that this feature targets is when you need to send search result(s) to your friends and rely on copy/pasting from web search – essentially this small window makes life easier and simpler (i.e. improves productive).

These are collaborative features/incremental innovation which makes Gmail a far more productive email client than other plain jane webmail products.

What’s your take? What are your favorite Lab products?

Tell me a reason why would you move to any other email client?
