Anyone else seen the new GMail front page, the one advertising Docs and Calander.

They seem to have removed the storage counter, which is a little annoying

Appears to be on some form of rota, as I now get one about spam in a very similar design. Screenshot attached:

Thanks Stephen.

So i guess this is why they changed the spam icon...

I think it is a right move to shift the focus from 'infinity + 1' storage to less spam as storage is already a out-of-subject-matter topic ... I don't like the community logo though ...

Here are the new icons:

The log in box is under the create a new account box?
That can't be possible.. :/

Stephen, what's the URL? It will have a different ltmpl parameter which triggers this design.

David, I get the log-in box under the create account box even on the normal design

Sorry Tony, forgot to note the URL. I'll keep an eye out for it

I caught a glimps of the one that Stephen saw but it went away after i logged in and logged back out,

Just got this log-in page again, but the URL is the same as the default page. The ltmpl parameter is still "default"

www.google.com/accounts/Servic ...

Weird. They must be randomly showing this new template then, unless it's the new default on some of the servers.

This morning my Gmail looked like the first one on top. Now I am getting this one
