Gmail’s new version rolled out for me today, and first thing I noticed that it had reset my gmail chat config (basically I had switched off gmail chat), my greasemonkey scripts were broken and I had a firebug extension warning on top.
While I have no gripe about greasemonkey, resetting gmail chat setting means I’ve to check rest of my settings to be sure anything else is not broken.
New version seems quicker, with additional options in “More Actions” menu and updated “Contacts” section.
The Internet browser is the new OS. What if a “thin client application” becomes thicker than the “Thick”s of the lot. The problem with web applications– “[…]is that they have tried too hard to make the web into a complete application platform, to the point where they don’t even bother holding themselves to the same standards by which desktop application developers are judged.”
