In addition to the new Gmail Contacts features added yesterday, Google released a slightly redesigned Gmail inbox, and there is one feature in particular that has made me incredibly happy.
Check out how large and easy to find the "Compose Mail" button is. It used to hide amid the links in the left-hand column, and despite being a Gmail user for years, I sometimes struggled to find exactly where it was located. Yes, holding down shift + c opens a new window in which to compose mail. I love the new button. I love its placement, and I love the ease in which I can find it and use it. Thank you, Google, for making this geek girl's day.
