I’ve been using gmail since the name gold rush days. The interface is intuitive and the conversation threading makes reading mailing lists much easier. One thing has always bothered me and that’s the bright white color. It makes reading email painful in low light. Gmail recently added themes that changed most of that. The message bodies are still white but the chrome around the outside is much darker. My favorite theme is the mountains. The color scheme works well to remove some of the brightness while not contrasting too much with the messages bodies. If they manage to incorporate some rivers and fishing into the theme it will be perfect.
