Whatsapp Pinterest

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”.

Gmail Notes Sidebar is a free to use browser tool. The app comes in the form of a browser add-on for Mozilla Firefox. You install the add-on and are then able to store notes with each email in your Gmail account. Simply open up any Gmail email and click the Ctrl+Alt+G hotkey configuration to open up the add-on’s sidebar where your notes are displayed and can be accessed.

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!!!
