gmail’s new compose window – summer 2013

gmail/google recently made it non-optional to use the new compose window. The best solution I’ve seen so far is simply to revert to the “plain HTML” version — http://gmail.com/?ui=html Even the larger version is annoying. Not just the size/overlay aspect to it. But also the abstracting-away of the email addresses, instead showing “Erik Haugsjaa X”

So someone let me know when gmail stops forcing the new compose window. Until then i am using the ?ui=html version. it’s great! I might switch to yahoo or fastmail at this rate! The main advantage to gmail vs the others at the time was superior spam filtering. perhaps that’s still a problem elsewhere?

This is a bit of an aside, but I also currently prefer fastmail’s handling of business accounts for email vs. google apps. It’s an added expense, but might be worth it vs IT time depending on your needs.
