I feel like Gmail adding a ton of crazy awesome capabilities and lab features lately… but what the hell is with their choice of interface? I feel like everytime Gmail does some kind of visual update, it look worse than it did before.
I’ve tried every kind of webmail under the sun (and have about 80 billion email addresses to prove it) and I stick with Gmail because I love the functionality and customizability (is this a word? Is now.) of it. But I must say… I’m a visual person, and if they’re adding random “Compose” buttons that stick out like a sore thumb, I have to wonder where they’re going with this. It looks completely out of place and was instantly noticeable.
Please Gmail. Overhaul your interface. Make it look like it’s existing in 2010.
