Google is testing new web-based Gmail features | Apps and Software |

Google’s products are constantly tested behind the scenes for potential new features, and since Gmail is just about as high as you can get on that list it makes sense that there’s no shortage of potential updates being explored at any given time. Recently we explored a series of new feature for the mobile Gmail client, and now we have images of what those same features look like on a desktop browser. No matter who you are, email clients are difficult to adjust. There’s a certain comfort level found in the rhythm of performing one of the most boring and routine tasks in our digital lives. Doing anything to upset that rhythm — even if it is for the name of improving the overall experience — can often be frustrating for users. As a result Gmail’s changes are often subtle, are optional for a long time, and tend not to upset the overall workflow. The wave of features we’ve been invited to take a look at shows an entirely different user interface, one that is clearly designed to function across a variety of screen sizes without losing functionality. Most importantly, it also closely resembles the mobile experience that we leaked recently.
