Adam Bosworth's Weblog: GMail, et al
Adam Bosworth's Weblog: GMail, et al "Google is clearly trying to think outside the box. Their use of DHTML is both audacious, astonishing, and sometimes almost annoying. It is incredibly quick and when entering a new contact name with just a key stroke or two, it is an almost visceral thrill. And it has a very untraditional outside of the box look and feel. But when Reply To requires an act of faith that a box will expand, I'm still not sure where I stand. And Google clearly doesn't want me to delete. They want me to archive, file, label, and in general slowly build up a searchable volume of email whereas Mailblocks by default ages my mail."
