In most circumstances, it’s the small things that count. The smallest details which make a service so awesome. As with most of Google’s products, there are a ton of hidden gems. But the single – most useful – feature is in Gmail.

The ‘+’ tagging of email

Instant email address using Gmail's "+" feature.

I’ve been using it for so long, that I probably take it for granted, but I recently realised that not many people use it, or even know it exists. I’m sure that it’s also available on numerous other Email providers, but I use Gmail, so who cares about the rest…

This function is particularity useful for signing up on various sites, assigning filters or just plain labeling emails for various uses.

Get the lo-down here on Google’s official blog post (dated back in 2008) or just search Google for various uses and ideas
