With all that email you get these days, it’s easy to get buried. For those millions of you who use Gmail as your main email client, either for your personal email, or through work or school, allow us to make some suggestions. Whether you’re chasing Inbox Zero or just want a little more efficiency, Gmail Labs may be your solution. Labs are add-ons you can use to customize your experience; they can save you time by supercharging your Gmail. These “experimental” features can break at any time, or eventually be incorporated into Gmail itself, but since every click counts, we’re willing to take the risk. Open the settings in Gmail by clicking on the sprocket icon in the upper right-hand corner of your inbox window. You’ll see “Labs” near the right side of the list. Scroll through the list of labs currently on offer and enable or disable each one.
