Google releases new Gmail gadget

The search giant Google has released a new Gmail gadget for its Google Desktop product.
The new gadget will allow users to read, search and send Gmail messages while in Google Desktop, according to Google. Users will also be able to star messages and use keyboard shortcuts. The plug also utilises keyboard shortcuts and contact autocomplete.
In a blog post, James Yum, Developer Programs Engineer, Google Desktop, said, "You can star messages, use the same keyboard shortcuts, and we didn't forget about contact auto-complete. It doesn't take up much space in your sidebar or desktop, and you can also resize it to show as few or as many messages as you'd like."
Presently, the application is Windows-only and requires Google Desktop version 5 or higher.
Google Desktop was released in October 2004. The application aims to make searching a PC as easy as searching the Web. Google Desktop provides users full-text search over email, files, music, photos, chats, Gmail and Web pages viewed.
The application also includes other gadgets that allow users to be shown new email, weather updates, photos and personalised news.
Interested users can download the new gadget from Google site.
