With Google recently rolling out an expanded right click menu and these extensions, Gmail just became more versatile and easier to use.
Google's recently rolled out an improved right click menu that adds some useful features to the Inbox, some of which could only be used within an email. The new additions are Reply, Reply All, Forward, Move, Move to, Label as, search for emails by subject or sender, and having multiple emails open in multiple new windows at the same time. Some features depend on whether Conversation mode is on or off.
