Google Changes The Look Of Gmail And Google Drive Results On SERPsBy: Chris Crum - December 13, 2012
Earlier this year, Google launched an experimental feature that lets you add results from your Gmail account to your Google web search results page. Later, they added Google Drive files into the mix. The feature has been available to those who opted in, and were granted access.

This week, Google also released a Chrome extension that lets you files from the web to Google Drive.
