The Gmail rainbow

I love Gmail, and I really love its labels, but I really really love its filters.  I had a hard time following all of the groups I wanted until Joe showed me how to drink from the firehose.  Now I get greeted with a nice rainbow in Gmail:

With this, twitter, and Google Reader, sometime I feel like I need to quit my day job to keep up with the conversations.  So now I have two problems: I’m running out of colors and running out of hours in the day.  Anyone else have a worse rainbow than mine?

  • I had the same issue to I had to start using base filter labels and the use Floders4GMail through Better GMail 2.

    Here is a link to show you how to use folders4Gmail.

    But all you have to do is enable it in the Better Gmail 2 addon.

  • Seriously, mine is almost exactly the same. Each time I open gmail to look at the convo’s i need to catch up on I feel like a raver who just took the blue pill. Rainbow madness. But, its good stuff. :) Keeping up, IS the problem.
