Evidence of Gmail Task List

Following the post I made yesterday about the rumored Gmail task list feature that “turned out to be” RTM, I saw a comment from Garett at Google Operating System and revisited the Groups thread pertaining to his original post. Users on Groups have posted evidence that Google is internally testing a task list feature.

The evidence comes in the form of CSS rules. One particularly interesting one references corp.google.com, which is (as far as I know) an internal network address accessible only within Google. Take a look at this rule (I’ve added line breaks and indents for clarity and space):

.gtasks-sprite {
  background-image: url(http://www.corp.google.com↵
    /~bolinfest/gtasks/sprites.png)
}

Looks like Garett was right after all. Yipe! I still want support for other task services, though. And the option to turn it on and off.
