Gmail People Widget

I've been waiting for Gmail to integrate this for such a long time! Even though I haven't been able to enable it yet from what I can tell the Gmail people widget basically aggregates the latest relevant information from your contacts so you can easily find it.

Thing is, this has been around in some form or another for a long time but only as a 3rd party plug in. Xobni, Rapportive, Gist, etc. Finally Google has stepped up to make all your contact info more accessible and useful. Now if the de-duper would only get smarter and de-dupe fuzzy contact info it would be 1 step closer to a perfect contact manager.
