Gmail Goes Atomic

By on October 4, 2004

I noticed this morning that my Gmail inbox contained an Atom link on the left hand side. Yet another cool and easy way to keep track of your incoming gmail. I couldn’t get it work correctly in SharpReader though. I assume it has something to do with the fact that it needs my login/password to retrieve my inbox. Just another nice addition to an already fine product. I wonder what other new Gmail additions we might see from Google in the near future.



  1. Found a cool way to make use of this, but it does require FireFox.

    1. Open Notepad and paste the line below and save it as gmail.html link rel=”alternate” type=”application/atom+xml” title=”Atom” href=”” /

    2. Open this html document in FireFox. You will see the orange RSS button in the corner. Subscribe to it

    3) Now you have your email in your bookmarks.

  2. Okay, the Atom link is gone now (for me anyway). The link mentioned by Attis is the link, but I can’t seem to get his trick to work. If I didn’t know better I’d say they released it a bit too early. No dount we’ll see it again eventually.
