Gmail gets the “Undo send” feature!

Have you sent an E-mail and regretted the next moment that you hadn’t ?? This happens a lot of times. Sometimes, when you miss a point in the mail, or forget to attach a file or even send a mail to the wrong person. Well, we all have wished for an “Undo send” feature, but there was no such thing. But now there is! Gmail has just introduced the “Undo send” feature as a part of Google Labs.

When you send a mail, you can see a Mail sent notification, just like when you save a draft or archive a mail. The notification will have an Undo link and will only stay for 5 seconds. If you click on the Undo link, then the message will be opened back in the Compose tab.

Boxee gets updated, adds Hulu back

Boxee has just updated its application and added a few updates. Hulu had stopped allowing content to be viewed in third party apps and Hulu support broke in Boxee. However, this version of Boxee fixes that. This time Boxee is pulling content from Hulu through RSS. Besides fixing hulu, Boxee has introduced AppBox. Its their first take at an application store that makes it easy for users to install new apps and plugins. I guess this will be the next media store after the iTunes store! They have also included native support for 3rd party repositories, so you don’t have to rely on boxee as a gatekeeper for what goes into the official boxee app store.

Boxee also adds an Auto-updater so that you dont need to fetch updates from their website everytime.

Google releases QuickSearch for Mac

Quicksilver is a free application launcher that we all love. Its the first app that Mac owners install on their Macs. Today Google is released a new search-and-launch application called Google Quick Search developed by Nicholas Jitkoff, the developer of Quicksilver.

Google Quick Search not only searches Google, but also AddressBook contacts, Applications, Documenst, Music library and Calendar lists. Users can also perform a deep search by hitting Tab to drill down into possible actions to perform—like composing an email or starting an IM chat.

The application is currently just a prototype, so you can expect some glitches. But it has run smoothly for me so far. And some good news for Developers: It’s open source, just like Chrome.
