GMail gets colored labels...Cool.

Just logged into my GMail account to find the Goog gang launched a new UI feature, colored labels. I geek out about small but great UI features like this.

I use my GMail account mostly for discussion lists and groups, which I auto-tag with labels. Great for keeping track of e-mail you don’t want clogging your regular account – and also a great targeted search resource when you’re looking for answers to technical problems you care about.

Of course, by default with this setup my inbox is usually a sea of things that I don’t immediately care about.

…Enter colored labels. As you can see, I’ve colored a couple of things I really care about which jump out now when I’m scanning my inbox. Killer.
