Have Chrome Sort Gmail Emails, Files, Links & Images In Separate Tabs


For many, Gmail has now become the de facto email service but despite being powerful, customizable and fairly intuitive, there are a few features Gmail ceases to offer along with. Though that’s where a number of Google Chrome extensions fill the gap, with Mikey For Gmail being the most recent one in this genre. If you fancy Gmail’s new tabbed interface, you’re gonna love Mikey, as the extension allows you to quickly find things within your account by sorting them out under relevant tabs. It does this by indexing results inside your Gmail and presents images, links and files from sent and received emails under their pertaining tabs. No, it doesn’t add a search box or anything with the sort, though the extension is merely designed to present things separately in one another.

A few circumstances to keep in mind before getting started: obviously, Mikey requires access to your Gmail account so that you can index content, in which it also stores your data overs its own SSL AES-256 encrypted server. While a service like this might raise several privacy questions , the developers declare that this is the best they can index content from the Gmail, plus your information is not merely encrypted but tend to also be deleted upon your request whenever you want, by sending an email. More details are available under the FAQ section on Mikey’s website.

To get going, install the extension from Chrome Web Store. Once ready, logon to your Gmail account that should be tied with Mikey. A small show up automatically appears inside your inbox, prompting that you connect Mikey to your Gmail. You may also have the FAQ, or click ‘Not right now’ or ‘Never this account’.

It’s worth mentioning here that Mikey requires a number of hours to index all your emails (both sent and received), along with the total time it takes to index everything is determined by the amount of items in your account.
