Better Contacts

Just yesterday a friend was complaining that GMail has one of the worst way of building a "To:" list in your mail from your contact list.

Well, his prayers have been answered with impeccable timing by the guys at Google. The new features in GMail include a link to the contacts book from the left navigation itself, with the most frequently used contacts, and an easy way to compose a mail to be sent to multiple contacts.

It is still difficult to build a "To:" list after you have written out your mail. I hope this will improve next.

GMail was also experimenting with Atom feeds for their mail notifications. I had a link to my feeds yesterday, but today it's gone. I don't think I'd use this feature, though - I prefer my GMail Notifier in my Firefox browser. However, it's easy to see why this is a useful feature. Only, I might never get around to using it.
