    Would you be up for a Gmail redesign? I know the best part of Gmail is it's simplicity (among other things), but I find myself thinking that the interface is a bit outdated?

    What do you think?

    Of course, but it would have to be easier to use. Don't go changing things for the sake of change.

    Agreed, kind of goes in line with don't change a winning team. I just think it could use a little "modernization"?

    The best part of gmail is the free cloud storage. Past that, i don't really care what it looks like.

    (I like old things anyway. You know, stuff like a black 1938 Pontiac coupe with a red pinstripe. Or am I imagining that my great-great-aunt's car had that red pinstripe?)

    Actually I dunno if I am so fond of gmail's labels and all that associated process of assigning and removing them. I wonder how many people use them when just searching for what you want in all mail is as easy or easier.

    Haha. You read my mind!
    I use Gmail. It's simple and easy to use, and it manages my email needs well.
    An interface change would be nice, but I would also like to keep it's simple interface at the same time.

    I agree.. I hardly use the web interface. But don't get me wrong, a cleaner looking interface that is easier to use wouldn't be bad at all.
