Remember the Milk, one of the best Online Task management services is now fully integrated into GMail. The Integration of RTM into GMail is so good that you’ll never again need to visit RTM again. Email integration of this kind is always welcome, because I can do everything from Emails, to planning my tasks, and just about everything from a single interface. On a side note Remember the Milk integrates pretty well into other Google Services like Google Calendar, and Offline support via Google Gears. For other forms of integration that RTM offers, have a look at their services page.
Coming back to the GMail integration here’s what the guys over at RTM had to say about the GMail Integration :
Remember The Milk for Gmail is a Firefox extension that allows you to manage your tasks in Gmail (complete, postpone, and edit tasks), add new tasks (and connect them with your emails, contacts, and Google Calendar events), automatically add tasks for starred messages or specific labels, and much more!
Here are some screenshots of RTM fully integrated with GMail, I have to say it does really look uber cool!!
The GMail crew seems to be working hard these days, ever since the launch of GMail 2.0. GMail has finally given us one of the most important features we’ve been waiting for quite long and that is Colored Labels. Well Labels was a great feature GMail already had, to help us organize our inbox, but these Colored Labels, help us easily spot out the message we’re looking for. A Screenshot below, shows the colored labels feature in action.
You can now set a different color for each label so you can identify messages easier. Not all Gmail accounts have the new feature, but it will probably be enabled for everyone soon (Mine is yet to come!).
Ever since the Introduction of the new GMail, a lot of new features are being added to GMail on a regular basis. The latest one is the addition of Group Chat and Smileys into the Chat client that it is inbuilt into GMail. I have to say this is a cool new feature coming from the GMail team, because I can read through all my emails while having a group conversation will all my classmates for the next class outing!
Start a group chat by clicking on the Options link at the bottom of a conversation window. You’ll now see ‘Group Chat’ as a new option. Once that’s selected, just type in the name of the person you’d like to add to your current conversation. If you don’t see the group chat option yet, try signing out and logging back into your Gmail account.
The added bonus of this new feature, is the addition of Smileys into the GMail Chat. Until now, this feature was not directly accessible, but now they are available at the click of a button.
Its really nice to see GMail continuing to innovate in this highly competitive market.

A Malicious exploit has been discovered in Firefox that would allow a Hacker to use a Malicious JAR file to get access to your Google Account and all your confidential information.
Firefox is falling into some serious trouble over the past few months, with more and more security exploits being discovered and being exploited. The latest threat involves the usage of a malicious JAR file. The flaw is still in the wild and the problem persists with the websites of Major Internet companies that includes Google. Beford.org has found a way to use the JAR exploit to get details of Google Accounts using a Malicious JAR file specially crafted to take advantage of the exploit.
Well I’m going to refrain myself from writing about the Exploit. I have tested this exploit on my own spare Google Account, and I can confirm that this works. Its better be to safe because I’m not sure when exactly is Google and Mozilla planning to patch up the security holes. I suggest you download the NoScript addon for Firefox. Right now NoScript seems to be the only solution. If you are wondering what NoScript is, then here is what its developer has to say about it :
