Google will invite users to try new features the company is considering adding to its Gmail service, the company said Thursday.
At 6 p.m. PDT Thursday, users will be able to select from 13 new features in a "labs" tab in the Gmail settings page, said Keith Coleman, a Gmail product manager, in a meeting with reporters here.

>> users will be able to select from 13 new features
Which feature is number 13? I only see 12:
01: Quick Links
02: Superstars 03: Pictures in chat 04: Fixed width font 05: Mouse gestures 06: Signature tweaks 07: Random signature 08: Custom date formats 09: Muzzle 10: Old Snakey 11: Email Addict 12: Hide Unread Counts
Gmail can't count? Or what? Is the number and/or types of features different depending on "something"?

By the way, one new feature I'd really like to see was: Allow me to send and receive executable files
As it is now you can't even send them inside a zip file, and not even with the "exe" file renamed to "txt" inside the zip file. IMHO, that's totally ridiculous, and also pretty dang arrogant that Google assumes that the uses don't know what they're doing like that </rant>
