Gmail gets Smileys and Emoticons

Well, love'em or hate'em they're here.

Smileys (a.k.a. emoticons) finally worked their way into your gmail account.


And as you'd might expect, Google's chat has been updated too:


So, no more need to hunt down those secret emoticons anymore. :)
 
Update: after all, there still are some secret smileys you might want to check out here.
Update 2: and even more emoticons and emoji you can enable in the Labs section of Gmail.
