Google "Reports are coming in from around the Internet that the Gmail redesign, which we were previously able to stave off with 'revert to the old look temporarily', is now forcing itself upon us. I too have succumbed to the new design, and have been forced to find ways to cope. Here's what I did to make it semi-bearable." The Gmail redesign has been the biggest whine-a-thon in the history of the web ('cope'? Bearable'?). For what it's worth, the Gmail redesign has been a godsend for me - the new Gmail is beautiful, understated, and elegant. I love it. I guess the old adage still goes: the satisfied people don't take to the web.

My big problem with GMail is that they do redesign so much and they never fix the rough edges that actually matter to me.

Hence why I've always used it via IMAP and, now that I've got a VPS handy, I'll probably switch to doing my own e-mail handling. (My GMail account has always sat behind a swarm of forwarders on my own domain, so switching is easy.)
