What's up with Google?
they added the calendar option on Gmail page and it's looks annoying.

Can't they just go with nice tabs above the web clips?
something like that :

(and it's black-out the GmailLogo too)

I didn't enabled "web clips" but for me small "bar" is at top of my screen :

Orli which browser is that? Mine looks like TOMHTML's but with WebClips enabled.

I think Orli photoshopped that to illustrate her point. I agree it would look better.

Or put it to the right side, where there is an expandable "labels" sidebox. I mean you can put all kinds of links in it, at least we can collapse the box. I also don't like the top left corner bookmarks – it's simply too much emphasis on something not as important.

Now that I think about it I think the reason for this position is that it will be included on Google searches in the same position. Currently if you switch to the 'Google' option you can't switch back but I'm sure thats not permanent.
