(Newser) – Anybody who's ever been gripped by regret seconds after hitting "Send" will like Gmail's new feature, Wired reports. "Undo Send" gives users a grace period—currently 5 seconds, although future updates will provide the option for 10 seconds—in which they can yank back emails that are being sent to the wrong person, or just shouldn't have been sent at all.
