An email inbox isn't quite what it used to be. For the latest case in point, look no further than Google's latest additions to Gmail, which will let you perform a variety of new tasks without ever opening a new tab. More specifically, Google is expanding the use of its so-called quick action buttons, which previously let you do things like respond to an RSVP or confirm a flight, and will now let you do things likes leave a restaurant review on Seamless, open a Dropbox folder or view a video you've just uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo (to name a few). Not surprisingly, Google also says that plenty more options like those are on the way, so you can no doubt expect to see even more buttons in your inbox in the months ahead.
