Gmail gives users alternative to basic HTML view

April 25, 2005 Comments Off on Gmail gives users alternative to basic HTML view

Gmail has updated their learn more page and now allows users to choose a no browser check option to access a standard view of their account. Before, I was getting only the basic HTML view because I have to use a version of Mozilla 1.3 that works on Mac OS8.6.

In Gmail’s HTML view filter creation, settings (including forwarding and POP), spell checker, keyboard shortcuts and address auto-complete were all unavailable. I also didn’t have any invitations. In the standard view, the only functionality missing for me had been keyboard shortcuts. While I can understand their wanting it to work perfectly in every browser, I was better off and had more functionality with an imperfect standard view than with a perfect HTML view. Thanks to Gmail for fixing that.

  6. A perfect climate for painting to triumph

    The popularity of painting often coincides with boom periods of art buying – the last time people spoke of painting as being “big”, for instance, was during the 1980s. New collectors, in particular, attracted to a buoyant art market, tend to go for paintings. Their ease of display, combined with their historical legacy and their aura of originality and uniqueness, means that paintings are unrivalled not as works of art, but as commodities. Perhaps the best way to view the current status of painting, then, is not so much as an artistic phenomenon, but as an economic one.

    No matter how manipulated a photograph is in the darkroom or on the computer, it does not have the same weight and feeling of a drawing or painting, nor should it.

Malcolm Gladwell is the author Blink and The Tipping Point. Fascinating, often anecdotal, podcast about snap decisions and how to change the environment to improve decision making.
