Posted by James Watts, Software Engineer Our little baby's all grown up. We launched Gmail Labs as a forum for delivering useful (and maybe not so useful ) features that might not be quite ready for prime time. The idea was always that the most popular and viable Labs features would graduate and be made more readily available to all users...and that some of the less used, less viable ones would disappear forever

Posted by Ibrahim Bokharouss, Software Engineer On the Gmail team, we believe finding the right email among thousands of messages can be as important as finding the right web page across the billions of web pages out there. So with the aim of making search in Gmail easier, we built a new experimental feature in Gmail Labs: Search Autocomplete.
