When a user sends an email using Gmail, he/she can see two or three buttons on the bottom of the email message. There is a ‘show original’ button, a ‘view image’ button, and a ‘copy link’ button. The ‘copy link’ button has been replaced with a ‘go’ button. The ‘go’ button can be clicked to view the original website instead of just viewing the link.
