Welcome to Google labs :)

Google labs showcases a few of our favorite ideas that aren't quite ready for prime time. Your feedback can help us improve them. Please play with these prototypes and send your comments directly to the Googlers who developed them.

A new toolbar feature, under "Browser control" options of the new experimental toolbar options, that should raise a few eyebrows is the "Suppress the onUnload JavaScript event" feature of the new experimental toolbar options. The onUnload JavaScript event is most often used to open pop-up windows as you leave a page, which can be an annoyance. The feature will clear the onUnload event after loading each page... ;)

"Google staffers with wild and crazy ideas post their prototypes on Google Labs and solicit feedback on how the technology could be used or improved," reads a Google FAQ. None of these experiments are guaranteed to make it onto Google.com, as this is really the first phase in the development process. Google users with a desire to jump over the cutting edge are invited to check out the posted prototypes and send their comments directly to the Googlers who developed them.

Just a note: these technologies are still in the beginning stages of development, so they may disappear without warning or perform erratically. If something's not working on this page, please come back and try it again later.
