Signature Tweaks for For Gmail

Many of you use a signature when sending messages. To enter/activate a signature, click on the gear at the top right of the Google Mail window, select Mail Settings, and click the General link. Scroll down to find the Signature section. However, when replying to a message, the signature appears at the bottom of the message below the quoted text. You can change the position to have the signature appear directly below your response.

Signature Tweaks was a Google Mail Lab that changes the location of your signature when replying. Instead of appearing at the bottom of the entire message, it will appear directly below your response. Now Signature Tweaks is an option within the signature option under general settings.

Social bookmarking solves all those problems!

Instead of saving Web sites to your browser's Bookmarks folder, you use an online tool that saves your information on a Web site. Each time you save a new Web page there, you type a few keywords or phrases to help you remember what you liked about the site. Those keywords are called tags. And, most social bookmarking tools allow users to share lists, so you benefit from the hard work of others interested in the same topics.
