It's measurably slower, more bloated and offers useless new features (nudge, auto complete sentences, quick reply with generic responses). Waiting for a compsci dude to do metrics on this with a before after. I think it's literally 3x slower, if not more. The double login thing is really a pain in my balls too.Way to go gmail team. After 12 years of using gmail, I'm looking to leave them and for a solution. besides, they use gsuite / gmail login as an anchor for building the tracking profile on users. and even if you log out of gmail, they keep the cookies until you double log out (remove account). So I need to clear cookies to purge the tracking they have on each session.IF IT AINT BROKEN DONT FIX IT. y'all could have made subtle changes. as soon as I see the new gmail graphic while i'm waiting 10 seconds for my shit to load, i know i'm screwed and have to find another email service.

I don't mind the new interface but it is painfully slow; like almost dial up slow in every browser I've tried.I hope I don't have to find a lighter e-mail client to use; what a pain!
