I open up my work email this morning, and jump back in horror, because it's a massive wall of bold text. Something doesn't look right. The messages are crammed so close together it makes it difficult for me to visually process them. And, oh, what do you know, it's because Google is being "helpful" again.

They have three different email display settings: Comfortable, Cozy, and Compact. I had mine set to comfortable, so that there's nice visual space between the messages and I don't go blind from overload. Gmail has decided that on my laptop screen, I am now only allowed to use Compact, regardless of which option I have selected.

I feel like someone Kinjad my damn email.


I'm off to download Thunderbird.
