The redesign is a sleek, cleaner version of its predecessor. It also makes it easier to access your calendar and tasks right there in Gmail without having to open another tab in what is probably already a pretty crowded browser.

That said, not everyone is going to love the new redesign. Part of it simply comes down to an aversion to change. No matter what the changes may entail, there will always be a group of people that understandably prefer to stick with the older version. They know where everything is, it works for them, and they just don’t have a need for the new, flashy features. Not to mention that this is the biggest overhaul Gmail has seen in years.

If you’re among those who were cringing when Google announced the redesign earlier this month, you’ll be happy to know that you don’t have to actually stick with the redesign.

If you’ve tried out the Gmail redesign and you want to retreat to the comfort of your classic Gmail interface, it’s just two clicks away:

  1. Launch Gmail in your browser and click the Settings button.
  2. Click Go back to classic Gmail.

That’s it. You’re back in the old interface… for now. Google hasn’t made it clear how long you’ll be able to stick to the classic interface, but for the time being, you can keep things just the way they are.

    Just use an email client. Much more efficient and you're insulated against stupid random changes to Gmail.

    I personally stick with Eudora even though it hasn't been supported for a long time. It's still the best I've found. Thunderbird is more up to date and also works well.
