Six ways to get more from Gmail

Make Google email do more

There's much more to Google's free email service than an inbox. Here's how to turn Gmail into a major productivity booster.

Better Gmail scripts

These and many other missing features have inspired a gaggle of volunteer programmers to write dozens of Greasemonkey-compatible Javascripts that customize Gmail's interface in Firefox, as well as applets that change the service's behavior in both Firefox and the Opera browser.

Better Gmail is a one-stop collection of 25 of the best scripts that you can enable and configure through a single dialog box.

Firefox users must first install the Greasemonkey add-on. Opera incorporates its own scripting environment compatible with Greasemonkey scripts. As we went to press, the scripts in Better Gmail had not been updated for compatibility with Gmail's recently revamped interface.

Until that happens, you can switch back to the earlier Gmail interface by clicking the 'Older version'link in the site's upper-right corner.
