Google rolling out Gmail 2.0

Posted on Thursday, Nov 01 2007 @ 03:10 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Google is working on an update for its online email client Gmail. The new version will be faster and will feature a better contacts management feature.
Google during the recent Analyst Day announced they want to release an updated version of Gmail that’s supposed to be faster than the current one, thanks to a JavaScript back-end rewrite. Also, the new version aims to improve contacts management. “Gmail 2.0” – possibly the announced update – was also mentioned in Google’s internal company goals last year, the aim being to achieve “70% user happiness" for that version.
More details and screenshots of Gmail 2.0 can be found at Google Blogoscoped.
