GMail Labs adds nested labels, better message previewing

Hopefully you've checked out GMail labs before. It's packed with slick additional functionality that you can bolt on to your Web mail client like these 10 useful options. Two new features have been made available that are definitely worth enabling: Message Sneak Peek and Nested Labels.

With Sneak Peek turned on, you can right-click a message in your inbox and a snapshot will appear above your inbox. The message remains unread (it is a sneak peek, after all), and you can page back and forth between other messages in the thread, archive, and delete from within the window. A quick reply feature would be nice; to respond, you've still got to click through to the message as before.

Nested Labels is a dream come true for the organizational fiend. Set up new labels like so:
Home
Home/Bills
Home/Bills/Hush Money
...and your labels pane will display them in a hierarchical tree. You can then click the plus sign to expand and the minus sign to hide. It's an excellent way to get more labels crammed into the limited amount of space provided by default.
