I notice there are some changes in GMail these two days. The ones that I notice are visual changes.
The “more actions” drop down list looks different. I think the font type and size were changed. The drop down list looks more “boxy” too. The next thing I notice that could have been changed is the message alert box. I am not too sure about this but it feels different to me.
Anyway, here is the serious part.
When I am accessing GMail using Internet Explorer, everything I do seems to be very slow. For example, clicking on the checkbox takes about 3 to 5 seconds before it is selected. In fact, clicking on anything takes that long to be done. I also notice that during this period, my CPU usage shoots up to more than 50%.
I don’t know what Google staff has done to GMail but it seems to be killing my CPU resources everything I try to do something in it. Strangely, there is no such problem when I am using Firefox.
Are you experiencing the same problem? Could this be a way Google is supporting Firefox?
