Still Waiting for Gmail 2.0 Beta

Where is the Google love? I still haven\’t seen the new UI for Gmail in my inbox. Apparently, my account has not received the upgrade yet. Maybe it\’s randomly assigned. I\’m using my Gmail account everyday — an avid user — why I haven\’t seen the new version yet? I\’ve been waiting for it ever since the first rumor came out.

While everyone is discussing the new features and showing off screenshots, I\’m still here, waiting anxiously. I really hope that the new UI will be activated in my account soon.

I\’m surprised to see that the \”loading…\” message in my account in Gmail had changed from red to yellow so I knew right away that my account is already using the new version. From what I have \’felt\’ so far, what I\’ve read is true. There is a slight slow down when scrolling page. However, I noticed that there opening email from inbox listing is now faster. I think that the javascript is pre-fetching the content of the listed email so it now loads faster.
