Gmail Gets Trendy New Themes!

You know the pleasure you get when you add a colorful new theme to your iGoogle page? OK, multiply that by 1,000, and I give you the sleek new themes for Gmail. Just launched today, there are already 30 different themes to choose from — ranging from nature themes to shiny and chrome-style themes. Google has given Gmail a little makeover with crisper and cleaner lines (it reminds me of Google reader). To spice up your email, go to the themes section in settings and you should see the new themes. And if you don't see them, keep checking back and they should appear sometime within the next few days!

The beach one is great because it changes depending on your time zone. A sunset in your time zone is reflected. Also, I felt it wasn't too distracting in the least :)

I have the tree one that changes based on the weather in your area. Since I'm in Chicagoland I've got a pretty, subtle snow setting!

I just logged into GMail a few minutes ago and was so confused! lol At first I thought I'd clicked on G. Reader at first but then I realized they switched things up. Now I have the candy theme :) Later I'll probably end up with the Cherry Blossoms, to remind me of DC.

Not feeling it. I feel that its too distracting when I'm trying to chat and my eye keeps getting drawn over to the picture. :-(

My co-worker doesn't have the themes in her settings yet. Keep checking back. Google said everyone should have access to the themes in the next couple of days!
