The genius of Gmail

For everyone who uses Gmail, they are probably aware of the little icon on the upper right linking to gmail labs, where one can see the add-on features developed by the Gmail peeps.  Some of the things found there are good, some are just not as useful.   However, with the time I spend on Twitter lately, I found one “tweet” about this Gmail feature that I thought was genius. I’m not sure how useful it’s gonna be, but when I found out about it I was impressed.

Have you ever found yourself sending an email only to find out it was the wrong address or there was some unforgivable error contained in the text? Gmail seemed to have found a solution to that. It’s the Undo Send feature. However, after sending, of course you don’t have forever to withdraw the email.  After about 5 seconds or so, that “Undo Send” link that appears after sending will disappear. So you better be quick.
