Launch Gmail to a blank page instead of the inbox

At the suggestion of Merlin Mann on his latest visit with Mac Power Users, he recommended a little Gmail hack that is amazing and I have to share. 

Requirements: Google Chrome

First, create a new label. Name it “Null”. Now go to that label and grab the url. It will probably be something like this: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?shva=1#label/Null

Next, go to Chrome, and right-click in the address bar to select “Edit Search Engines”. Create a new search engine, just like this:

Now, you can go to Chrome, type “gm” in the address bar. Press enter, and your GMail will load to your new label which bypasses your inbox and can allow you to search or compose, without be bombarded with new email.
