Gmail’s Black Dot

Gmail’s Black Dot

Originally uploaded by Gubatron.

On Both Firefox 3 and Safari, on 2 different GMail accounts I see a black/grayish dot on the top left corner.

Google only indexes Google groups talking about the subject as of today July 4th 2008

Do you get one too?

  1. With Firefox 3, add the Add-on “Glazoom”, written by the Daniel Glazman:

    Then, back on the GMail page, right-click to the “black dot”, and on the opened contextual menu, select the entry “Zoom on Element”.


    This does not explain what it is used for, but at least, visually, it seems to be like a folded corner of paper.
