what is wrong with the new gmail buttons

I’m having trouble getting used to the new Gmail button. Here’s the explanation, in a simple animated GIF. My my motor memory remembers the position of the “Delete” button, and finds the “Move” button in its place.

Also, “Move to”? WTF? It looks like the fruit of a religious compromise between the “Folders are evil, Labels are googly” and “Folders are how the world works, you hippies” camps. Hey design-by-committee… Look, it’s your new friend, Gmail!

new gmail features

Gmail added some new features to it's arsenal today. The most important one for me being the ability to import contacts, of course. Combined with address auto complete, it's a wonderful thing to have.

The next big thing I'm looking forward to is Yahoo Mail's clean, fast new interface - thanks to its acquisition of OddPost. I expect it'll hit browsers within a month.
