I noticed few little change to Gmail:
* Trash has been rename Bin
* The traditional chat settings are now collapsed (only video settings are expanded)
* The contact detail page now shows Title and Company just below the contact name

Quite a revolution

I think it used to be Deleted Items in UK english, but everyone here calls the American "Trash Can" a "Bin" here so maybe Google changed the UK English version, and this is what Jérôme is using?

Not sure exactly what you mean about Video Chat settings, mine looks like this:

Is that what yours is like?

Also, the "Contact Detail Page" hasn't changed for me, if you mean "Cotacts" in Gmail. If you mean on your Account page, then yes, I have that too, don't know how long it has been there

Indeed, my Gmail was set up in English UK this morning (don't know why...), and the "trash" is called "bin" in British English.

I can't reproduce the chat settings change of this morning, and either in UK or US, I have the UI of yesterday (I didn't take a screenshot).

For the contact details, the (insignificant) change is:

Where "Title" and "Company" were in the "More" section before

Was it the first time you had installed the video plugin? I think that temporarily changed the Chat settings page when I installed it.

Does anyone actualy use the UK English setting? Normaly I'm annoyed when the only option in a program is English (US) as there is no point specifing if there's only one choice. But with Google, setting to UK means you have to wait ages for new features :(
