Default Gmail expands pop-up UI to everyone, kills old compose interface

It seems like the moment some of us have been dreading for a long time is finally upon us. Gmail is officially killing the old Compose interface and replacing it for everyone with the new pop-up one.

Now this news isn’t exactly surprising as many users have already received the interface changes, and the new pop-up UI is actually set to be the default one, but for those of us still hanging on to the old version this is the end.

Google argues that the new UI offers a lot more flexibility and users even have the ability to write multiple drafts at the same time. The company even listened to feedback in started including a “maximized” version of the pop-up a few weeks ago. However, many users still find this new design to be infuriating and distracting. Unfortunately there’s nothing they can do short of switching to Outlook.

Count me in the "hate it' crowd. The pop up is killed by my popup blocker. Useless! Clever way to force gmail users to disable popup blocking and increase ad revenue....

How so? All I use is simply Adblock and I don't have any issues composing in Gmail. Adblock kills any and all ads they may have on their interface.

you can also set adblock to allow ads on a certain website, it only takes 2 clicks with google chrome.

Would it really be so hard for these companies to just let people choose their own preferred interface?! Facebook is the biggest offender of this, there is no logic with these people.
