Gmail Adds Drag-and-Drop to File Attachments

From Mahable.com: Gmail has a new feature for Firefox 3.6 and Google Chrome users: drag-and-drop file attachments. The feature is very straightforward — just drag files from your desktop onto your e-mail, and a green box will appear where you can drop your files.

Google promises it will “enable this for other browsers as soon as they support this feature.” Why the wait? Drag-and-drop functionality is an HTML5 feature. Currently only the Gecko layout engine — the engine that powers Firefox — fully supports HTML5 drag-and-drop. WebKit, which powers both Safari and Chrome, has only partial support for drag-and-drop.

Gmail – The best web based email by far

Gmail web based emailWith Google’s approach to email the sky is the limit. Gmail includes excellent spam protection, phishing warnings and virus scanning; ultimate organization, conversation view, POP3 access and 8 GB of inbox storage that continues to grow every day. Additionally with Gmail you can chat, post documents and spreadsheets online, customize your homepage, get mobile access, check your RSS feeds, be notified every time you receive a new message and your account never expires.

Gmail provides some of the best email organization on the Internet. Their pride and joy feature is the “conversation” interface. Instead of having a list of back and forth emails between you and a friend or co–worker all replies and sent messages are filtered into one line of inbox with a corresponding number of messages in that conversation. Gmail’s security includes spam, virus and phishing protection. All spam is filtered into a spam folder that allows you to separate the good from the bad, all incoming and outgoing messages are scanned for known viruses, and suspicious messages that look like phishing scams are flagged with a big red banner across the top of the message. Additionally, you can report both spam and phishing attempts to Google. To sign up for a free account go to http://www.gmail.com

Google Voice

Google Voice is a web based application that you gives you a local phone number of your choice, or you can port your existing number to it, which can call up to six phones simultaneously. When a person calls the Google Voice number, the user’s home, work, and mobile phones all can ring simultaneously. The user can set up the service so specific phones ring for different callers or groups of callers, or so some callers go straight to voice mail. Google transcribes voice mails after they’re left, too, e-mailing it to the Google Voice user or letting them read and listen to the message through a Gmail-like interface.  You can send and receive text messages directly from the Google Voice website. On the whole, it is a nice service of which everyone will want to have an account (just like Gmail), especially since it is free. Google Voice also has Android and BlackBerry based applications, iPhone users can now use Google Voice through Google’s iPhone web based portal. In order to get a Google Voice number, you need to request an invitation. Go to the Google Voice invitation page and submit your email address. Some time later, you will receive an email requesting you to register.
