re: Google Gmail Learns New Tricks
The idea is great but not new in Gmail. Compose should always be in a separate, movable window letting you see other messages including one open already. But the format is bloody awful - and the new compose tool is very buggy and hard to use. I've been using email for more then 20 years and this is one of the worst compose tools I've ever seen.

re: Google Gmail Learns New Tricks
Not to sound like a fanboy I really like seeing Google give its users a balance between user experience and security by implementing new features, one of which is the most important, 2FA which allows us to telesign into our accounts. I know some will claim this make things more complicated, but the slight inconvenience each time you log in is worth the confidence of knowing your info is secure. I'm hoping that more companies start to offer this awesome functionality. This should be a prerequisite to any system that wants to promote itself as being secure.
