Searching Gmail Just Got Better

Gmail has a helpful new upgrade: you're now able to search your email by filtering out the size of attachments. So, if you've got dozens of emails about a topic, and several of them have attachments, and you know you want a particular attachment, you can guess at the file size of the attachment, and then search.
