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>
