New Gmail Lab lets you see Maps of addresses embedded in e-mails

Gmail has long had an automatic link to a map to the right of the e-mail if it detected an address in the body. But now, there’s a new Gmail Lab called “Google Maps previews in mail” that will let you preview the map right in the body of the e-mail.

It takes a few seconds to load, but it seems quicker than either clicking that automatic link or copying & pasting the address into a separate Google Maps window.
