Gmail has just rolled out it’s new UI, looks great.
2 shining points are:
- new colors set for the whole interface, except the big red compose button.
- improved conversation view, it will display a summary of the message for the hidden message, and click on it will show the whole message, much better than the old version. And it also diplays people’s image along with the message. This makes email much like doing an instant message. They definitely borrow the design from IM.
It does has a short learning curve:
See the toolbar here, sure you can guess the meaning of what they do from what they look , will get used to it after a few times I think. But I do feel not so comfortable with them, I think it’s something need to work on, or simply have some text displayed there.
And big red compose button
It’s just too attractive, ruin the whole clean interface.
