Gmail Changes Again: Google Rolls Out New Look



Quote:
The new-look Gmail that Google accidentally told us about last week is now rolling out to all users.

The changes, officially announced in a blog post Tuesday, allow Gmail users much more control over the look of the service. You can drag sidebars around to your preferred size and width, choose from a wider selection of high-resolution background pictures, and decide whether you want lots of email on your screen or more white space between mails. (Your choice of email density is between “Comfortable,” “Cozy” and “Compact.”)

Heavy Gmail users will also be pleased to learn that there’s a new search function — that is, you can now access...

I'm watching the video right now.

Your thoughts on the new look?

I found the new look great with almost every aspect! The size of the buttons and labels are now wider and easily visible and understood. This move by Google I like because I have found many newbie Gmail user used to have problems using it for the first few times especially to those who are not used to emails. The chat section that is now is easy as earlier is used to take time for loading and etc. Use of icons along widening the tabs is amazing, I even consider it as it will help newly registered users to understand meaning of certain icons.

Thanks

Cool

Just switched, looks pretty good!

The first impression I have, is that the new changes brought more clean look to the gmail & it looks like the admin panel of the wordpress
The spasing between lines is more wide which is less tiring the eyes.

He just disagrees, Derek. Does that mean, he doesn't like it?

I wanted to say that it is very intuitive. Especially the viewing of all the correspondence from one sender.

Although I still have not get used to the display such as the contrast and brightness due to the clean theme, I feel it is great so far. One thing that turns me on is the email search. Complicated yet simple to use and very efficient. Thumbs up to Google for this.

Went back to old one. New one looks quite dull and boring. Nothing much to talk about new themes either.

I've start using a new look and have no problems with it, and I like it. It is more clean design than the old one, and I find it easy to use. For me it is just a facelift and wouldn't change my habits in e-mailing world.

I like the new changes made in the Gmail, especially the flexibility in choosing the size of the text, and of course the themes making things look more beautiful.

As I use it since last few days, I think there's no much difference in it besides having that alienated feel of scrolling and viewing your emails since you've been used to that earlier GMAIL look. Though it seem to load faster, overall, the only conspicuous change is it's new theme/look.

I don't like the new look. It's a little harder to navigate at this point and just doesn't look as good in my opinion. I'm sure I will get used to it, but I don't see what the need was to change the look.

I guess I got used to the old version that when I updated the look, it got me confused and I had a hard time navigating because of the spacing. But still, changes are good, that means Google is working on to give us the best service possible.
