Ten tips for better Waving

Google has posted 10 simple tips to improve your Wave experience.  None are groundbreaking, but all of them help make it just a bit more useful.

Included are some keyboard shortcuts, how to link one Wave to another, and a few other useful tips.

Lots of insight on upcoming features for Google Wave

A Google Wave developer has spoken about a lot of non-confidential upcoming features for Google Wave.  You can read them all at Reddit, but here are some highlights:

  • Better “new Wave notifications” are coming soon. I use the slick extension for Google Chrome, but other options will be coming soon.  “Very soon”, in fact.
  • Tighter connections between Wave and email aren’t likely coming soon.
  • People don’t like the weird scrollbars, but we’re told that they have a “really really really really good reason to keep them”.  Not sure why, though.
  • Google Wave and Google Buzz share little (if any) code.
  • Wave doesn’t work well with Opera, but the Opera development team is apparently working on it.

There are plenty of other unanswered questions in there, so hopefully those can be taken care of soon.
