I seem to be unable to easily add a new gmail contact via mail.google.com. I don't want to manage this externally (like through Outlook, and have to pay monthly, or have multiple copies of stuff and sync issues). I want to go to the site to check mail if at all possible and manage all mail and contacts at contacts.google.com from there.
If I go to mail.google.com and mouse-over the name of the sender of an email, I then see a modal window with the senders name and his email address in it which is helpful. Also in that same modal window, I get three choices along the bottom.
1. View this contacts details
2. View recent emails with this contact
3. Email this contact
Obviously I would want to view this contacts details in order to add additional information about the contact to the database. make notes about the contact, etc.
However, it does not find any details or have any easy method of adding it.
How can I improve the process of adding usefull information to new contacts that come in via email?
