Gmail, the most popular free webmail out there, has looked pretty much the same since it was first launched a few years ago. But now, Google is prepping the first major overhaul of the service, and you can test it out right now.
The new design is much cleaner and spacious than the cramped and cluttered original layout. There's lots of white space, which makes skimming your subject lines much easier, although there's less room so you'll need to scroll down a bit more now.
The redesign will be rolled out over the next few months, but if you want ot check it out now, you can simply go to your mail settings and select either "Preview" or "Preview (Dense)" to try out the two flavors now. What do you think, is it an improvement over the original?
