I Have the New Gmail!

closeThis post was published 14 years 30 days ago. A number of changes have been made to the site since then, so please contact me if anything is broken or seems wrong.

Some time between 1330 and 1830, my Gmail account was upgraded to the new UI. I wish I could use it. Having no userscripts available is intolerable. Well, I’m being unfair; Mihai Parparita took the time to update Gmail Macros, but he changed the key bindings I’ve gotten used to and left out some features.

The new Gmail codebase is definitely faster, but until I can have my properly customized Gmail Macros, Attachment Icons, and Gmail Signature Float scripts back, I’m sticking with the old UI. That is, unless Google pulls the plug on the original interface before all of my scripts are updated…


I am an avid technology and software user, in addition to being reasonably well-versed in CSS, JavaScript, HTML, PHP, Python, and (though it still scares me) Perl. Aside from my technological tendencies, I am also a theatre technician, sound designer, violinist, singer, and actor.
