After the recent release of Google Calendar, Google has decided to make navigating through their most popular products easier. Google has placed a small toolbar at the top left of Google, Gmail, Google Calendar, and a few other pages. Therefore, if you do wish to navigate between Google Calendar and Gmail for example, you no longer have to go through the hassle of opening a new window/tab and typing in a URL. This new feature is very handy and useful tools that will help people using Google’s products navigate to where they want to go faster. Not all Google Accounts have the feature added to them yet, but expect to see this feature on you Gmail or Google Calendar page within a few weeks.

GCalQuickTab is a Firefox extension that will detect if there\’s an open tab with Gmail or Calendar open already, so that when you click this new toolbar thing, it will just switch the tab rather than open a new tab/window.
Thanks Rosano, that is very useful.
Would be better if it didn’t create new windows each time you clicked it.
Nice blog, it looks to be a very high standard in web markup/accessibility.
