Mouse gestures in Gmail

Did you checkout the gmail labs thingy on the settings page in gmail? They have introduced many features to enhance the email experience.Β  One of the features is mouse gestures which looks pretty cool and makes browsing in between mails very easy πŸ™‚ To enable, go to setting page in Gmail and then to Labs tab in there and enable ‘Mouse Gestures’. Now go to any of the email folder. Open a message. Right click and hold. Now moving your mouse to left will take you to the next message in folder. Similarly, moving the mouse to right will take you to the previous message and moving the mouse upwards will take you back to the folder πŸ˜€ Thats just awesome. Hopefully this will save some of my time while browsing the all time flooded gsoc list πŸ™‚

Here is a pic of the gesture.

Gmail Bug

I was observing this since a week now, so thought of posting about it πŸ™‚

Software: Gmail Beta

Bug Description:

Mail which is deleted forever re-appears in the spam folder in Gmail.

How to reproduce:

VeryΒ  easy. Keep your Gmail spam folder open in a window. Wait for a spam to arrive or send a spam mail from your another email account to your Gmail account. Let Gmail show automatically that there is a mail in Spam folder. Don’t click on Spam in Index. Now click “Delete all spam messages now” and then click Ok when it says that the messages will be deleted forever. After you click Ok, the page will reload and the *SAME* mail will be there πŸ™‚


If you think I have gone mad and talking in air. Here is a *video* proof πŸ˜› Checkout the timestamp for the mail and the running clock in the top right corner.
