Geek Tip: Make Your Gmail Greater

A mighty geek named Matt Cutts has compiled 11 power tips for Gmail that are sure to satisfy the curious of heart.

My favorite tips include:

  • Want to open Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF documents without going to another page and using another software? Don't forget you can open Word attachments in Google Docs from Gmail.
  • Want the ability to open emails in new windows? While writing your email, look at the top right corner of the page and click on “new window” to open that email in its own window. Easy as pie, right?
  • Want to be able to resize the email composition box on the default page? Cutts suggests you use the resizeable text area extension for Firefox because it lets you click on the border of any form text area and expand it.
