Are You Using Gmail’s New Compose Experience? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Ads by Google

Following Thanksgiving weekend, we asked you last week if you actually shop on Black Friday. While traditionally a US custom, Black Friday’s shopping deals have spread around the world, and over 300 readers from different parts of the world participated. The interesting results are below.

Out of 302 votes in total, 3% said they shop on Black Friday, only only in regular stores, 8% only shop if they find a really good deal, 9% shop regularly both online and in brick and mortar stores, 16% rarely shop, unless really tempted, 17% only shop online, and 32% said they never shop on Black Friday. An additional 15% voted for the “no Black Friday in my country” option.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

So a third of the readers who voted don’t shop on Black Friday at all. Do you believe it?

This week’s poll question is: Are You Using Gmail’s New Compose “Experience”?

Want to make some extra MakeUseOf reward points? The most useful comment on the poll will be awarded 150 points!

About a month ago, Google first introduced its new Gmail compose “experience”. If you’re using Google Apps, you might have only gotten to try it this passed week, but chances are that if you’re using Gmail, you know what the new compose is all about. I’ve heard many mixed thoughts about Gmail’s new compose. Some have adopted it enthusiastically for its clutter-free interface and multi-tasking abilities, and others feel it adds too much clicking to the workflow and that many important features are now hidden. Where do you stand? Are you using the new compose feature, or will you wait until the bitter end, when Google forces it on everyone?

What makes the new compose better? What makes it worse? What are your reasons for choosing to use it? Or not use it? Tell us all in the comments.

    I like the GMail’s new compose because it allows me to multitask. While I’m writing my mail, I can still view the inbox and stay updated if i get new mails. I can read new mails while composing and copy text from previous mails. It is very simple and intuitive to grasp. All in all, I think this new compose is an improvement and I like it very much…
