Gmail features that come with Google Chrome

  1. Application shortcuts: with this feature, people can place a shortcut on their desktop to Gmail. With this, users can open Gmail in its own window, one that looks like a regular Windows application window. This is useful for those that don't want the clutter of the address bar, bookmarks, etc.

    Many websites, such as email services, operate like actual programs, similar to those on your computer desktop.

    Open these websites just like any other programs on your computer. Create an application shortcut for the website you're on:

    • Click the Page menu
    • Select Create application shortcuts.
    • In the 'Google Gears' dialog box, select the checkboxes where you want shortcuts to be placed on your computer.
      • Desktop
      • Start menu
      • Quick launch bar
    • Click the OK button.

      When you double-click a shortcut icon, the web application opens in a special streamlined window that gives you as much working room as possible.

  2. You can add "" as a search engine in the address bar, thus allowing you to search your emails directly from the address bar. so, once set up, you can type "gmail to:me from:larry" into the address bar. Once you press Enter, a Gmail window will open with the search results already loaded.
