Has anyone else noticed their mail page has changed names from gmail to google mail?

This happened to me once. Are you using Tor? You may be browsing through a server from places where "GMail" is forbidden (like Germany).

I'm using Chrome, and the same happens in Firefox. I'm in the US, but understand that Gmail isn't allowed in Germany.. Strange.

I use the prettyful "Candy" theme, so it says "Gmail" in a stylized way. Do these themes in Germany lack "gmail" graphics as well?

Gmail is Google Mail in the UK too.

Whichever theme you use it says Google Mail, the candy theme has the words in the same style as the Gmail Candy logo but the terminal theme just has the normal Google Mail logo rather than the ASCII one.
