Hi guys – just noticed this – Gmail's got a new "Report Bug" link on the top-right hand corner of the screen.

There's a screenshot at:

and the link links to: mail.google.com/support/bin/re ...

I think the EU and UK DC's are running slightly tweaked gmail s/w.. remember the in the UK they use googlemail.com rather then the conventional gmail.com ext..

The report bug link was a hot link for the roll over for those users . (I think!!)

/pd: Even if I login from the USA, I still don't get the link. Weird. Maybe they've just rolled it out to only some users (as they do)...

==>> "Even if I login from the USA, I still don't get the link. "

but users from US/CA will never get that link, as they will be never be pointed to the DC which dishes out the googlemail.com service.. wich wold be a UK based DC!!

Not, sure if I am reading the issue right here..!!

I don't think the googlemail.com / gmail.com domain is controlled by a different DC – I think it's just a login variable. Besides, I have a gmail.com address, so that wouldn't apply anyway (although, granted, I'm still a UK user).

Perhaps this is a sign that Gmail is coming out of beta, making sure there are no bugs remaining.

/pd: I know ;-) but I don't understand what that has to do with whether the "Report bug" link displays.

You can get all the "US" features by changing the language from "English (UK)" to "English (US)" It shouldn't matter where you are the page should be the same. (Until Google starts rolling stuff out)

Mrrix32: It's not as simple as that. I've always had my language set to "English (US)" and I often don't have new features before anyone else.

I was "English US" when I found the link. I've now changed it to "English UK" and it's still there. I'm a UK (googlemail) user; but as I signed up before the change I have @gmail.com as well.
