Gmail's New revamped interface

Google has rolled out new changes to its Gmail interface which include changes to the contacts section and the ordering of the left sidebar. They have made the left side bar more accessible to the user i.e Mail, contacts and Tasks links have been moved to the top left of Gmail. Some  more discernable changes to the interface are:
  • The compose mail which is now made a button rather than a link which used to be earlier.
  • The Select All, None, Read, Unread, and Starred links that used to be above your messages are now options in a drop-down menu, next to the Archive button.
  • A smaller header area puts the first message in users' inbox.
A major overhaul was done to the contacts making contacts easier to use.
The changes to the contacts include

  • Keyboard shortcuts now work in Contacts too, and Google has made selecting and  grouping contacts more like selecting and labeling email.
  • Users can now sort contacts by last name. Look under More actions for this option.
  • Use custom labels for phone numbers and other fields.
  • users have the option to undo their recent changes.
  • Manual and bulk contact merge.
  • Automatic saving
  • Structured name fields: Users can now set name components (i.e. Title, First, Middle, Last and Suffix) explicitly or continue to use the name field as a free form area if they prefer a less structured approach.
