Is Gmail's Delete Button Good Enough?

Under constant pressure from Gmail userts (especially ours) Google has reluctantly relented and provided a delete button. The problem is, they did not go far enough. Google has included only the barest of features - namely, the ability to delete selected items.

What they left out, however, are features users of the Smart-Delete Button have come to expect, such as user-customizable keyboard shortcuts, a more logical button placement and 'smart' enabling of the button only when items are selected. (Whowants to see a 'No messages selected' error?)

Should we accept this? I think not!

Until Google comes to their sensesand gives the users of Gmailwhat theywant, we have somethingbetter: the Smart-Delete Button.


Remember, you CAN make a difference...

Your email is information to Google. They don't want you deleting your email.

I would prefer that Google dropped their delete button. Why? Well, we have the excellent Gmail Smart-Delete Button. Also, if IE users want a delete button, they will have to switch to an alternative browser like FireFox. I don't see a problem with that ;)

Interesting point, since Google & Mozilla are 'nearly' one in the same!
