Editors' Review

Google's long-awaited upgrade to Gmail has broken nearly all of the plug-ins designed to enhance the webmail client. Better Gmail was one of the most thorough Gmail extensions for Firefox, and the publisher has now begun compiling a new version to spruce up the new Gmail.

The handful of additional features it provides are good, no doubt. There's the forced https connection, useful for us paranoids. There's a forced mailto, as well, so that all mailto's in other HTML pages open up a blank e-mail window in Gmail. The Inbox Count First feature shows the unread message count from the in-box in the tab title. Other features include support for keyboard shortcut macros to expand the preloaded set, support for Google Apps domains, message details that appear only for the most recent message in a conversation, and attachment icons that replace the boring paperclip with a program-appropriate icon: a ZIP attachment will use the ZIP icon.

The latest version brings back some of the best features from the original Better Gmail: Google Reader integration, one-click conversations, and skins, and introduces some new ones: message rollover highlighting and Folders4Gmail. The new skins are more subtle than the ones in the last version, but the Google Reader integration is the true star. It loads faster and offers a more seamless UI than before, all while cutting down on jumping windows from your RSS to your email. Although it still has fewer features than before, Better Gmail 2 also has less clutter, and is strongly recommended.

"I`m using it, & it is no doubt fine and very ajile."

October 20, 2008  |  By SATYANARAYANMOHAPATRA

 |  Version: Better Gmail 2 0.5

Pros

It is attached to Mozilla. Mozilla and GMAIL 2 0.5 combinely makes the browsing like listening to a philharmonic orchestra conducting infront.

Cons

So far I did not look for its demerits yet, as I go further may some flaws, in my view come along.
