The gmail web interface cannot be permanently defaulted to the "old" (better/faster) version for the user. A gmail draft email when deleted DOES NOT go to the trash folder. The gmail autosave function, while possibly helpful, cannot be customized in any way. The annoying "try google chrome etc." nag in gmail comes back every day and CANNOT permanently be turned off. The gmail 'spellcheck' flags words that are already properly spelled. In gmail if you create a draft email, click 'save now' then simply click anywhere on the text edit window, the 'save now' button un-grays, why, the text is not changed, the cursor position is not saved, why would it mark it as now changed when it's not? I've lost important draft emails before at 2am after being up late logged in to gmail (html version) because the 'save now' button is a mere 10 pixels from the 'discard' button and a discarded draft email DOES NOT go to the trash folder. These are BASIC annoyances and "google" has had 5 years to fix such asinine behavior. Google applications are option-scarce and hardcoded in many annoying ways. It is almost impossible to successfully contact anyone of importance at 'google' about such 'bugs'. I've focused on the neg. here because these are BASIC 'wrongs' that should have been fixed 5 years ago. Google's IMAGE search is still limited to just 20 results per screen max, no user option to increase this. It has been that way for more than 5 years. I use gmail sometimes, but not exclusively. NEVER store your text, emails or data in only one place.
