Using Gmail via your favorite web browser is great….unless you hate conversation view. Scanning through an inbox in conversation view can be an adjustment for those who’ve spent decades seeing a whole new line for each reply to a conversation. Google’s finally giving Gmail users the option to go back to the delight of seeing dozens of copies of the same subject line fill up their inboxes.
With a single click of a radio button, you’ll soon be able to turn off conversation view. This is far from revolutionary, but I like the flexibility. I know quite a few people who’ve given Gmail a shot, but gave up after being flustered by conversation view. Those that use Outlook and other popular emails will probably appreciate the consistency.
