Links to new Gmail applications
Some of these seem potentially great, and I'll no doubt be playing around with a few of them. [Via

My favorite is
OSX Gmail Status = god for you mac users.
I've been using the GMail Notifier for FireFox for awhile now and it's quite nice. And when Google recently changed their login method, the author of the extension had if fixed quite quickly. I've used the GMail Compose extension on occasion as well. Quite handy when you don't feel like opening another mail client just to whip off a quick message.
So, any Monkeys got an extra invite? I am starting to get curious, especially given the OS X angle. :-)
sent you one.
So, Gmail is still invite only?
And I can see why.
And I can see why.
In a good way or bad way? (is it ever going to open, or are invites going to be the sole method of signing up?)
I am guessing they're going to keep it at invite only for quite a while, since allocating 1GB of memory for every new user is likely to explode their servers if it becomes open sign-up. /2¢
GTray rulez! Now I can uninstall the GMail notifier plug in, which has stopped working.
Ahem ... if there are any Monkeys who have a spare invite ... I have a spare kidney ... Thanking you! Have a nice day!
sent you one, quid! (didn't we have a thread for this, once?)
Can I also shill for a gmail invite from a fellow monkey? I'll wash your car or pick-up your dry cleaning! (and yes, we did have a prior thread for this, but i was too late to the party).
Not to add snow to the ball, but any Mofi in the Ottawa area, I will be willing to juggle, unicycle, or otherwise debase myself for such an invite. :D
Got you both, naxosaxur and Rorschach.
Regarding invitations, the most popular theory seems to be that they'll open GMail to the public on or immediately before the IPO. I don't think storage is the issue, they're still working on the system. They changed the login method a few days ago and a week or two before they, they added several new features. Also of note is that while you have 1GB of storage, the individual files seem to get cut off a lot smaller. (I forget the exact size now, someone was experimenting with it and found out it starts rejecting files at some point that was well below 100MB.)
middleclasstool: seriously? Update: I just opened my gmail account! Thank you so much for the invite. I will build small monuments out of saltines and toothpicks to honor your memory and generosity. Now: where exactly do you park your car...and would you like wax or polish?
Woohoo!! Thanks, middleclasstool!!!
Naxo: Arkansas. ;) You're both welcome. And I have three more of the bastards, as mentioned in other gmail threads. email's in the profile.
My uni is standing by.
I have an invite is anyone wants one. Check my profile for e-mail.
