Gmail: Sort Emails, Files, Links & Images In Separate Tabs with Mikey
For many, Gmail has now become the de facto email service but despite being powerful, customizable and fairly intuitive, there are a few features Gmail fails to offer out of the box. Though that’s where a number of Google Chrome extensions fill the gap, with Mikey For Gmail being the newest one in this genre. If you fancy Gmail’s new tabbed interface, you’re gonna love Mikey, as the extension allows you to quickly find things in your account by sorting them out under relevant tabs. It does this by indexing results in your Gmail and presents images, links and files from sent and received emails under their pertaining tabs. No, it doesn’t add a search box or anything of the sort, but the extension is just designed to present things separately from one another.
A few things to keep in mind before getting started: needless to say, Mikey requires access to your Gmail account in order to index content, for which it also stores your data overs its own SSL AES-256 encrypted server. While a service like this might raise a few privacy questions , the developers claim that this is the only way they can index content from your Gmail, and your information is not only encrypted but can also be deleted upon your request anytime you want, by sending an email. More details can be found under the FAQ section on Mikey’s website.
