Gmail Notes Sidebar: Store Notes For Individual Gmail Emails & Access Or Edit Them Later [Firefox]

Some email conversations are very long and include emails from your previous correspondences as well. Reading the entire email afterwards to remember what it was about can be very time-consuming. What you could use is the ability to take notes with such emails. This is a feature being offered by a service called “Gmail Notes Sidebar”.

You install the add-on and are then able to store notes with each email in your Gmail account.

The notes can carry special formatting as you can see from the image above – different font styles, colors, and sizes are supported. Your notes are stored online and are fetched each time the add-on is run.

    Notes for GMail in Chrome is currently in private beta at notesforgmail - everyone is welcome to try. And no, we are not related to Gmail Notes Sidebar :)

    Interesting that it's not for Chrome, being that Chrome and gmail are integral, Foxfire is unrelated. But it is a great idea!!!
