<<One of the features that makes Gmail different is its use of labels instead of folders. Sure, labels can serve pretty much the same purpose – they can help organize mail or flag messages for follow up. And unlike with folders, messages can have several labels, so if I get an email from a friend about a trip we're taking together, I can add both a "Friends" and a "Travel" label to it.>>

I don't set labels manually too much, because almost all the mails are filtered automatically, but it's a nice new feature that probably will help me organize.
Yay!

These style of buttons were already leaked by accident in google blog post about gmail themes...

I did mention it at the time, but we weren't really sure why they were like that.

Great new feature anyway!

Is everyone seeing the new gmail button layout, or is it just me?

Ohh, where did the 'search the web' within Gmail function go. I miss it!

Seems that SPAM label is now shown as every other labels : it appears on every mail in the spam folder, you can also remove it by clicking the x near the label in the mail view.

Move to spam (with the help of the new button, and autocompletion) works great to!

Same for "chats", "all mail", "outbox", "draft", "trash" labels that are now showed...

You can also move to inbox a mail in your outbox (while offline) or in the draft folder.
