Add me to your Gmail web clips

Posted by on January 3rd, 2006 at 10:08 am

If you use Google’s popular email service, Gmail or their killer Desktop*, I just heard about a cool new feature called Web Clips that allows you to display headlines from your favorite websites (hint, wink) right above your inbox (see below) or in your sidebar.

(*update: I just downloaded Google Desktop (wow) and as a default it adds recently visited sites to your web clips.)

It’s really simple to add a new feed in Gmail. Here is more from the Google help pages.

And here’s a screenshot of my feed in action:

    Do be aware that Google stores every email you send or receive in gmail forever, whether you delete it or not, and that they also save any search you do. Their link to the privacy policy on the desktop software is not working but elsewhere in the terms and conditions they reserve the right to collect information and send it anywhere in the world that they do business.

    Thanks for a great website!
