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.

New interface sucks

I could get used to everything in the new interface except the big, ugly, red button. It is too big, has too much white space, and the red draws my eye to it no matter what I do. Sure, you can get rid of the button by changing the theme, but all the non-white themes are difficult to read and suck even worse.

Sadly, I think I will have to write a browser extension to override this one single button and make it bearable.
