We have come across several new additions and releases by Google in the recent past, such as canned responses in Gmail, AdSense integration with Analytics and the release of Gmail Mobile 2.0.
Another new feature has been added to Gmail today which is one of the most requested features. Yep, you are right! It’s the smiley/emoticon support for emails.
Gmail is one of the most popular email services available. I use a popular desktop client, Thunderbird, to receive my Gmail mails and it is my default email client to send emails.
But for people who do not have a mail client configured for their browsers, Firefox 3 has a built-in feature by which they can configure Gmail as the default email client. This trick will enable you to automatically open Gmail when clicked on a mailto link.
