Gmail Search Has Been Improved

If you search within Gmail a lot, you probably know how many different ways you can filter your searches to find the email faster. Recently even more ways to filter out emails were added; you can now search by size, exact match, and with even more date options.

The + sign before a word searches for an exact match. For example, searching for [+Giraffe] would return results that have the exact word "Giraffe" in it.
The phrase "size:x" also works now.

A full list of all of the search filters can be found here.
