Thanks Jim.  The extension works great.

I think search is the biggest reason I keep using the web interface
over a desktop client.  I've
been using gmail for about 3 years now, and being able to search
quickly over 3 years worth of email
has been tremendously helpful to me time and again.  I just make sure
not to send anything terribly
private without encryption :)

Something I recently found out about which I thought was pretty cool,
was that gmail search has it's own
set of search keywords, similar to the "Google Hacking" keywords made
famous by Johnny Long.  Using these
makes searching e-mail even easier.
