Gmail makes unsubscribing from pesky mailing lists easier in new web update

Google has just announced a new feature for Gmail web users that should make it a lot easier to unsubscribe to any mailing lists they might be signed onto.

In a post on the official Gmail Google+ page, the company stated:

"Now when a sender includes an "Unsubscribe" link in a Promotions, Social or Forums message, Gmail will surface it to the top, right next to the sender address. If you're interested in the message's content, it won't get in the way, and if not, it'll make it easier to keep your inbox clutter-free."

This small but rather cool change should allow for users to quickly find that "unsubscribe" link in mailing list emails and click on it. At the same time, Google points out that those emails might be less likely to be put into a Gmail spam folder. What do you think of this change to Gmail?
