Let’s start off with the obvious question: What’s Xoopit, and why would I want it? In short: It’s awesome. The longer version is a little like this:
We all had a party or a meeting where the question came up: “Oh, remember that picture I emailed you? Can you bring that up please?”. We all had to wade through millions of (spam)emails to find that one specific attachment with the answer to a simple question, and, let’s face it; not everyone saves their attachments the minute they get in to the inbox.
Xoopit makes finding attachments a breeze. When you’ve installed the Firefox extension for Xoopit, your Gmail will get an extra bar above your emails, showing thumbnails of the latest attachments sent to you. You can scroll the bar from new to old, so, if you’re looking for a picture, you should be able to find it in that bar. If not, there’s always the Xoopit serach-box on the left side of your emails.
When you click on an email, Xoopit will show the attachments the sender of that email sent you in the past.
It’s an awesome addon to your Gmail (they are planning to implement it into Hotmail/Live, .Mac, AOL and Yahoo pretty soon), and I can’t wait to give my 5 invites to you.
How can you get an invite? Just leave a dandy comment, and the first 5 commenters will receive an invite to the supplied email address.
