GMail's New Status Bars
I love when Google silently updates my products, making them better. The nice thing about web applications is that they can be seamlessly updated without forcing users to download software patches. In the last few days, Google rolled out a status bar indicator when uploading files for GMail. This was sorely lacking, because GMail would just sit there, with a "Working" sign... or a "Still working..." sign if you had attached files it began taking a long time to upload. But you never really knew if there was any progress being made. Now we can rest assured that there is progress. Nice work.
Hope you like these short posts today.
