Chrome Extension: Attachment Icons for Gmail and Google Apps

March 26, 2012 02:55 PDT

Gmail always displays a PDF paper clip icon next to the date of an e-mail indicating a file is attached to that particular e-mail by normally. I developed a Chrome extension named Attachment Icons for Gmail™ and Google Apps™, it's available on Chrome Web Store now. Once it's installed on your Chrome browser, the paperclip icon is changed to a thumbnail representing the file type attached.

This extension adds different icons for different email attachments in Gmail and Google Apps mail, a PDF DOC icon for emails with Word documents, a PDF PDF icon for emails with .pdf files, and so on. With this extension, you'll be able to quickly identify if it's a JPG, PDF, MP4, PPT, or any other common file type attached to your e-mail without even having to open it.

This extension supports multi-language, it can be easily localized. If you like to help make it available to more users by translating it into your favorite language, click here.

When I open many URLs simultaneously it took time to open it. On the other hand Firefox works tremendously good.
Chrome is only for entertaining purpose.
