Zemanta Helps Write Rich Emails In Gmail And Yahoo Mail

Windows/Mac/Linux: If you're a fan of inline photos and links connecting the content of your emails to the rest of the web, new browser plug-in Zemanta adds a rich email composition tool to Firefox and Internet Explorer. As the video demonstrates, Zemanta reads your email (okay, a little weird) and suggests images, related links, and inline links to Wikipedia. If you sign up for an account with Zemanta, you can finely tune Zemanta to search for images in your Flickr account or search for and add your friends' content when available. Originally Zemanta was just a blogging tool (it supports Blogger, WordPress, and most other popular blogging services). Now the unobtrusive extension works with both Gmail and Yahoo mail. Using Zemanta is both fun and a little annoying. It's really cool to quickly and easily add images and links to your email, but it's also a little irritating to see the Zemanta branding show up next to everything you add. (Maybe it's just me? I don't like looking like a shill.) Still, if you're a rich email junkie, Zemanta is a great tool. Zemanta is a free download, works on all platforms with Firefox and with Internet Explorer.
