Damn the new GMail design is really bad, isn't it.
@Gargron It's ehhhhhhh at best
@Gargron it's awful
@Gargron We use Gmail for our work accounts, and I immediately switched back to the Classic view.
@Gargron Just think of it as an advertisement for SMTP and IMAP?
@Gargron i have to wait like 5 minutes for emails to delete
@Gargron Finally. Years of endured mockery for still using hotmail finally worth it
@Gargron I like it a bit
@Gargron it’s confusing me way more than it should
@Gargron It is heinous.
@Gargron It's not easy to get used to, that's certain. I may go back, if I can..
@Gargron it's like they just added a few things and was like"OMG COME CHECK OUT OUR AWESOME BETA!"
@Gargron yep, I use email client Canary to wrest control over gmail and others.
And slow. Soooooo sloooooow.
Oh no... They changed it again?
@Gargron It really is.
It irks me when companies revamp GUIs just for something to do and make it look like they're making improvements.
@Gargron I only ever use gmail in apps, so the website looks completely different every time I have to go there.
I don’t even store the design in my long term memory now because of it.
@Gargron I disagree, in my opinion it's much cleaner.
But why do you think it is bad? :)
@Gargron me @ google after they gave me an intrusive dumb window to show it to me : thanks I hate it
@Gargron I kind of like it. Maybe I’m bad.
@Gargron It's times like these I'm glad I switched to thunderbird and never looked back
@Gargron Someone at google needs to be fired.
Half the time I can't even open my E-mails anymore.
@Gargron Truth. I can’t find things I’m looking right at.
@Gargron and slow af
@Gargron thought I might be alone in this sentiment. It hurts my head.
@Gargron I kinda like it tbh
@Gargron the checkboxes are way easier to click
@Gargron I was complaining about it today. I find the font difficult to read and there’s so visual hierarchy on the page, it’s just a massive pile of closely kerned text 😫
@Gargron web or mobile app?
@Gargron not a fan, no
@Gargron just use thunderbird
@Gargron Yahoo levels of bad tbh
@Gargron I say that about Google in general
@Gargron What don’t you like about? I’ve not given it a close look yet.
Maybe it's time to try ProtonMail.
@Gargron i don't know if it is because I'm Scandinavian but I like the light, rounded and open design.
@Gargron so bad I read all my mail through Apple mail, sadly.
@Gargron i hate it a lot. it's just so much more cluttered and difficult to use for no reason.
@Gargron Agreed! Not friendly like the old one.
@Gargron The ads are nice, tho
Anny hint on how to set it back to how it was? I'm lost.
@Gargron Well, I'm using Outlook🤔
@Gargron my biggest issue isn't the design itself but it seems to take so much longer to load now
@Gargron Haven't tried yet...
@Gargron It's one of those things that you get used to a few hours in.
@Gargron It... looks almost exactly the same? What is there to even complain about? This entire thread makes me feel like I'm losing my mind.
@erics just because you don't have any issues, doesn't mean it's the same for everyone.
For example, when skimming through my inbox, I like to be able to view the date on the right side. The new design hides the email date when you hover your mouse over, and shows four icons instead.
I'm sure there are other changes that I might not notice, everyone has different workflow. Maybe try to make useful comment instead of being edgy.
@Gargron I like it, better than CL's lay out :^)
@Gargron Unpopular opinion alert! I actually like it. Then again, I like the reddit redesign as well. I do have a bone to pick with the redesign: It reveals my username to a lot more people
@Gargron It really is. But I switched to Inbox long time ago ...
