In my previous post, I noticed that the latest changes in GMail caused Internet Explorer to slow down. The IE7 that I am running on will hang for 3 to 5 seconds whenever I click on something within GMail. Strangely, this problem only occurs in IE and not Firefox.
The Google team must have noticed the problem and has prepared an option for IE users to revert back to the old version. After signing in to your GMail account using Internet Explorer, you will notice an “Older version” at the top right of the screen. All you have to do is to click on that link and you will be sent to the previous version.
If you were having the same problem like me, this should solve it.
