gmail drag and dropIt only took five years, but it seems someone at Google’s Gmail finally learned about something called “drag and drop”.

As if it wasn’t odd enough that Google decided to call the orginizationl folders people are used to in mail programs by the name of “labels”, they had an archaic way of filing your emails by using drop down menus.  Well, at long last not only did someone figured out the mystery of “drag and drop” functionality, they also decided to add a new feature that wasn’t part of Labs, meaning you had to activate it yourself!  What a concept as of late for them.

Labels are now locked to the left side of the screen, and one merely need to click on an email and then drag it to the appropriate label to file it.  You can also do the reverse by dragging the label name to the email.

This is something that Gmail has needed for years, and this is a very welcome addition to a service that we here at StarterTech already love.
