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.

I agree. The messages are not separated clearly enough. What bugs me the most though, is the tiny little down arrow button which replaces the "more info" link.

The link was obvious and it used to extend the header of the message to include all the data (cc, etc.), but now if you manage to click on the ridiculously small button you get a popup that disappears once you click outside. It drives me nuts...
