Google Launches Cross Platform Search (Mail And Docs)

If you are an avid Docs user this could cut down on your search time. If you do not use that service, this does not effect you at all. It is one of those things that seems so obvious it makes you wonder why they did not have this before.

"Once you enable it from the Gmail Labs tab under Settings, the “Search Mail” button in Gmail will say “Search Mail and Docs” instead, and your search results will include matching documents and sites in addition to email messages.

We also added “Did you mean?” style suggestions, for those of us who make mistakes (who doesn’t?):

You may notice that mail results show up just as fast as before while non-mail results may take a tiny bit longer. That way, if you’re just looking for an email, having this lab enabled won’t slow you down.
