I want nothing more in my life than a mail client whose capabilities are mutable, on a day-by-day basis and with no opt-out, at the whim of someone other than me.
Google has slotted six new features into Gmail after testing the technologies in its Labs playpen, at the same time the company has dumped five other features that never got past the experimental stage. “Over the next few days, you'll see Muzzle, Fixed Width Font, Email Addict, Location in Signature, and Random Signature stop …
Don't know why anyone's marked Steven Raith's post down. He wasn't wrong, you know. They were experimental features.
... and aaron emm was completely wrong about incorporating stuff into gmail. We all know (by now) that only one thing was added, it's now been sorted and you can easily opt out. Besides which, anyone with a mail client could read/post with POP3/SMTP anyway and not even have to log in to the Google web site.
forgotten attachment is part of list that were promoted to inclusion in the Gmail product.
You need to re-read the article.
Though I have lost all trust for this company by now, and wonder why anyone would use them for email...
Heroin dealer give away their product for free also......I understand Linux, and people working together on a collective public project. I don't understand people treating a for profit company the same way. Google is out to make money (evil or not) for its shareholders, that is all it can do now that it is a traded company.
... but if you use the browser version of Gmail on your Android then it forces line wraps at somewhere round 76 characters and completely screws up your email.. As for why I'm using the Web version of Gmail when the Android comes with native Gmail support its because it only supports one email account, and the other email client provided (and the forked version of it) is complete pants.
as a bunch of new Labs features have also touched down on Maps, most of which actually seen to be useful. Although they want me to log in to my Google account so my preferences regarding which of these should be enabled can stick. Now, I don't have one of those, what's the matter with a cookie?
They've already locked down the google group for the fixed width font feature. Just went to try and post an argument against retiring this useful feature and found "You cannot post messages because this group is only available as an archive."
So, they kill a useful feature, and make it immediately impossible to discuss the matter. You also can't comment on the official gmail blog. Way to handle feedback Google!
