I am making this post with this preoccupation that most of our viewers use gmail and if you happen to be the one who don’t then I would insist you start using gmail. Inspite of all the disappointment that we saw in last few weeks after Gmail inadvertently closed accounts of few Gmail users, we still have a reason to believe that Gmail is our best bet. If we just just use some Firefox extensions along with it then it would make for a killer combination. Here are some of the Firefox 3 extensions which add some additiuonal functionality to your Gmail and in this process make it more compelling.
GmailÂ Notifier : Gmail Notifier Firefox Add-on allows you to monitor multiple Gmail accounts right inside your browser’s interface. It is pretty useful if you have multiple gmail accounts.
Better Gmail 2: Better Gmail 2 is a firefox extension that adds features to the new gmail interface. Better Gmail 2 is a set of Greasemonkey user scripts that add up individual features to the Gmail in order to perform functions you can’t do otherwise.
Gmail Manager: Gmail Manager is a Firefox extension that allows you to manage multiple gmail accounts and receive new mail notifications. It can display account details like unread messages, spam messages, saved drafts, labels with new mail, space used and new mail snippet.
Gmail RTL : The Gmail RTL extension adds the direction buttons, that are currently available only in the Hebrew & Arabic Gmail interfaces. Direction buttons allows you to write in Right-To-Left and Left-To-Right manners.
