HOWTO Add a clock to Gmail
It's been said that to invent something just take an existing invention and add a clock to it. If you spend a lot of time in Gmail, a clock can be useful and gmail has a labs experiment for adding gadgets so all I needed was a clock gadget. There are lots of clock gadgets but finding one that works well in the GMail sidebar is not that easy. Here are the steps: 1) If you haven't already, enable the Gadget experiment by going to settings / labs and select "Add any gadget by URL" and save. 2) You should now have a Gadget tab in the settings panel. 3) Add by URL: http://sevenpie.net/digitalclock4.xml It's probably also worth enabling the "Navbar drag and drop" experiment as well so you can position the clock where you want it.
