Google adds Gmail Labs to Gmail

Google recently introduced Gmail Labs, a new tab on the Gmail Settings page that offers a selection of experimental Gmail features for users to evaluate. Gmail Labs allows users to try out experimental new features in Gmail and send feedback to Google so the company can improve them.

The 13 new features that comes with Gmail Labs are as follows:

Experimental Search
See results on a timeline, map, or in context of other information types. With these views, Google’s technology extracts key dates, locations, measurements, and more from select search results so you can view the information in a different dimension.

Google Code Search
Search public source code

Accessible Search
Web search for the visually impaired

Google Extensions for Firefox
Add powerful new tools to your Mozilla Firefox browser. Extensions are small applications that you download and install into your Firefox browser to add new functionality.

Google Trends
See what the world is searching for. Google Trends is a tool from Google Labs that shows the most popularly searched terms from the beginning of 2004 till the present year.

Google Mars
