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.

(Engage Facebook mode) THEY CHANGED IT NOW IT SUCKS! Ever since OS News moved away from that single page layout with the grey background, it's been totally unusable! I swear never to use OS News again! </sarcasm>

I deal with "they changed it now it sucks" in every part of my life. At work, I have customers who occasionally update their software (imagine that), and the slightest of changes seem to inspire uncontrollable rage and despair in them. When I used to play Magic, I heard waves of "they changed it now it sucks" with the M2010 rules revision. Guess what, I heard the same thing with the Sixth edition rules revision, back in the 90s. Speaking of gaming, D&D editions. It seems every new edition ruins the game forever. Warhammer, every time a new codex comes out, the players of that army are pissed because they have to change their army list and buy new models (wow, Games Workshop wants your money? Who'd have thought?), while those who don't get pissed and use phrases "that's OP" and "fucking hax".
