Gmail's user interface has been totally changed. Major changes are seen in the contacts manager with keyboard shortcuts support and custom labels for phone numbers.
The new look for Gmail provides Mail, Contacts and Tasks together on the top left corner. User can hide Contacts and Tasks option by clicking on the right edge of the mail option.
Compose Mail now appears as a button and not as a link. The header area has been skimmed so that first email appears high on the screen.
The changes introduced in Contacts made Gmail more user friendly. Contacts can be sorted by First or Last name. Also the user can arrange the contacts groups wise. Gmail will auto-save the changes made in contact details.
The individual contact box is more structured and user can add more information about the contact. User can add more details by clicking on the Add button besides basic information like email, phone, address, birthday and URL for Twitter, Facebook or any other link.
