So if you've restarted Chrome recently, you'll notice they made a big change to Gmail. Now the various Google communication thingies are all essentially "tabs" on the side, so you can't chat while looking at email or videoconference while in Spaces. I have to ask what the point of this is. As a friend and I were discussing, the whole point is supposed to be collaborating - but how can you collaborate when you can only do one thing at a time? I mean, I have two monitors for a reason, and it's not just so I can play Solitaire while watching Netflix. Now it's impossible to pop chat out into a separate window I can move around so I can discuss what I'm doing with the people I'm doing it with. My second monitor feels lonely and unused until I'm done with work and can play a video game.

Anyway, take the Quiz and come back and tell us what recent redesign you won't get over anytime soon.

Don't forget the Easy Quiz!

Good luck, and let me know if you have any issues.

Can't you load another instance of Gmail in another window and switch to the chat tab there?

/i give Google as few cpu cycles as possible on my devices

They actually have a "standalone app" (which still requires Chrome to be open, which makes calling it "standalone" kinda weird) that they call a Progressive Web Application. Which seems to be a fancy term for an app that runs in the browser but isn't an extension.

Ugh. I'm sorry. At least it wasn't that stupid book about working on a crappy motorcycle.

It could be worse, Rand Paul makes all of his Congressional aides read Atlas Shrugged.
