Gmail now supports web clips

Google really doesn't stop improving its gmail service. After the introduction of antivirus detection last week, this time they are adding additional cool information to user accounts, using a feature called webclips.

Webclips is a new panel in gmail that can be used to display dynamically loaded information. In its implementation, this is similar to the ad panel, which displays ads based on the content currently loaded in the main mail reading window. However, this new feature allows information to be customized by the user.

This means that from now on gmail users can have access to additional sources of information, such as xml feeds from blogs, news sources, weather services, etc. In fact, any RSS or Atom feed can be incorporated using this new feature.
