For those of you who use GMail (like me) Google have rolled out a new look interface. Refresh your browser and then turn it on from the link in the lower right of the screen.
I’m not convinced it looks good on my 1366 x 768 laptop screen. Too much screen estate is taken up by the borders/banners/buttons and what not :
I *was* about to give up and start hunting down ways to change back to the old interface (the sledge hammer approach!) but then I thought I’d experiment a little bit .. the cog wheel on the right looks interesting. In there I can chance the themes and stuff like that but importantly I can :-
* Switch back to the old style
* CHANGE THE DENSITY
Now, let’s look when I change from Comfortable to Compact
Now, I can use that ! At least, I can try it today
