Did you know, long back Gmail Labs introduced a feature called “Undo Send” ? If not , you can enable by logging to your Gmail account and then navigating to Settings > Labs.
1. Go to Gmail Labs
2. Enable “Undo Send” and don't forget to hit save settings button at bottom.
3. Change default settings
After you saved your settings as mentioned in step 2 , click on settings (top right) and look for “Undo Send” option in “General” tab. Select “Enable Undo Send”. Set value of “Send cancellation period” to 30 and click on “Save changes” button at bottom.
Simply compose a mail to your friend ( jee bhar k gali do sale ko :P) and hit send. you will see an indication confirming that your mail has been sent along with “Undo” option.
This message will now last for 30 seconds instead of 5-10 seconds. Click on “Undo” link within 30 seconds and save yourself from embarrassment :P
Enable “Undo Send” even if you might use it less frequently. who knows, one day you might just need it :) Share your classic “oh-shit” moments while using emails if any.
Don't forget to check this excellent post which i found very useful.
I love to read a lot on variety of topics on internet and very often I come across an interesting blog post / web page. However, the pain is to share it quickly. All i need to do is to login to Facebook, Post a link. Here is the smart way to do it quickly.
Shareaholic is the simplest way to share, spread, and save interesting webpages via your social networks, email, blogs, IM, and more. Good news is, its supports Google Chrome , IE 8 , Firefox , Safari and Opera.
All you need to do is to install this extension from here. As i use Google Chrome , rest of this post will show screenshots from same. I believe its more or less same for other browsers too. Once you install it (say on Chrome) you will see a green icon on top right side of browser as shown below.
Configure: Its 100% customizable, lightweight, lightning fast.
Shareaholic in action : Make sure you have installed the plugin/extension to your favourite browser (Chrome in my case) and also logged in to your shareaholic account via Facebook as mentioned above.
One of my friend blogged about how to enable cool Aero effects in browsers. After opening this post ,click on green shareaholic icon(top right for chrome) and you will see “share menu” which is configurable as per your choice.
Click on Facebook button and it shows a small pop-up screen which allows you to add your own comments.
Now click on share button and voila !!! its shared on your Facebook account as latest update.
Try it and you will love it. For me its a “must-have” add-on for any browser.
Things i liked about shareaholic:
- 100% customizable, lightweight, lightning fast.
- Support for almost all popular social networking platform including Facebook,Twitter, Google Mail, Google Reader, Google Bookmarks and Read it Later.
- Customisable option for URL shorter, useful for twitter users.
- Keeps my bookmark bar tidy.
