GMail sports new features: Slideshow, FilterAssistant

Google has been very quick to integrate Zenter - their latest acquisition - to support online viewing of Micorsoft Powerpoint application into Gmail. I happened to notice that yesterday evening when one of my friend has sent an powerpoint attachemnt. It was handy because I haven't installed MS Office on the laptop.

a) Snapshot of slideshow feature

b) Snapshot of FilterAssistant feature

Was discussing about 'Slideshow' feature with my friend (who was on the mailing list of the earlier mail) in the morning, but she didn't have feature on her account. But, she spotted another feature called 'Filter Assistant', on her account. Again, this feature wasn't available on my account.

No clue as to why do we need 'Filter Assistant' on every mail you recieve. Looking at the brighter side, the GMail dev-team seems to be constantly introducing new features; unlike their competitors who seem to be resting on their laurels.

Am not sure when these new features will be available to all google accounts.

Filter assistant is a greasemonkey script provided by people outside Google for easy filter creation. It's not a feature of Gmail.
