Use Gmail labels as Quick Links
Featuring Gmail: Add labels to quickly access any saved query, email, settings, or any other thing within Gmail.
The extension was inspired by Gmail Lab "Quick Links".
*NOTE that the links will not appear in a separate panel but rather will be mixed together with LABELS.
Import from Quick Links Lab is supported 1-by-1 and in bulk by clicking the icon next to the quick link.
