[News] Faster Gmail In The Labs

Postby Guest » Mon Oct 29, 2007 4:25 am

he super giant Google is currently working on an improved version of Gmail, which is supposed to be faster than the one available at this time. As blogger Ionut Alex Chitu wrote, Google's officials who spoke at the Analyst Day event on October 24 gave several signs of a
new Gmail version that includes several goodies for the users looking to communicate on the web.

Beside the already-mentioned increased speed, it seems that Gmail will come with a function to allow prefetching messages in a matter of seconds. "When you load a page that contains a list of messages, Gmail will fetch them in advance so that when you need them, they'll be available instantly. Google said that Gmail will have a completely new JavaScript architecture that will bring a much better performance", Ionut Alex Chitu noted.

In addition, Gmail will include a new contact manager which might be available for some other technologies powered by the Mountain View company including Google Docs or Google Calendar, the same source adds. Obviously, this would be pretty useful, because Google Docs ? the word processor powered by Google ? provides several collaboration features and a handy contact manager will increase the speed and the functionality of the service.

But the most useful improvements seem to be the features offered by another Google service. Just like the Google Talk ? Gmail interoperability, the Google mail service might be able to work with other solutions very soon.

Besides all these features, it was also rumored that Gmail might be improved with a brand new interface, but there is no word on this matter from the Mountain View giant yet. Also, earlier this month Google increased the speed of the storage size counter, which recently reached the 4GB milestone, allowing consumers to save any message they want straight into their account.

Working on it. The features in the new version are mostly in the user interface (display/presentation, user interaction, etc) and will not really translate into any new features in the library.
