Gmail Browser title bar tweaks

This may not be important to you, but since a lot of people use Gmail but don’t read the Gmail blog, I thought I’d pass this on.

Official Gmail Blog: New in Labs: Browser title bar tweaks

Basically, Title Tweaks changes the order of the elements in the browser title bar to put the more important things first. Once you turn on Title Tweaks from the Labs tab under Settings, your browser title bar will display something more like “Inbox (3) – Gma…”.

The real advantage is that you can see if you’ve received that important email (new forum registration) without having to switch windows or tabs. More importantly, it’s not as in-your-face like some recent Labs features – Multiple Inboxes anyone? OK, to be fair, the Multiple Inboxes Lab is good and probably well overdue but its not for everyone and its a pretty dramatic change to the Gmail experience.

  1. No doubt this is a good feature, but if you are using fire fox, there is a pretty good add-on called mail notifier. Using which, it alerts you if you have a new e-mail without having to sign in to gmail.
    But again this is a really good and useful tweak. thanks.

  2. No problem. I’ve toyed with the idea of making my comments look different then visitor comments but I like the current look so much. I did add gravatars, but sonicwall blocks those now, so many people will not see them anymore. Do you see little pictures next to the comments?
