I don't like it either and also haven't found an option to revert to classic.

I don't think there is an option for that any more.

I think we're stuck with the new look now. It was probably only possible to change back for a while until Google decided everyone had to have the latest version, like it or not!

Edit: This is a quote from an article in The New York Times:
Quote:
UPDATE: Google has transitioned Gmail accounts to the updated version that it released last spring, and is now removing the option to go back to the “classic Gmail.” (The stripped-down HTML view is still available for some browsers but lacks many features).

I don't know why there couldn't have given us a choice to keep the classic. I find I want to get out of gmail as quick as I can.

I find that when I click on a message I have to wait for it to load before it comes up.

I haven't a clue why they changed it, but for me it isn't for the better.

I have Yahoo mail set up to also show mail from my Gmail and Outlook accounts and I have not noticed any change to Gmail.

Yes, I find that it has to load up. I never had to wait for it to load up before this change.

You may find the following article interesting and possibly useful:

Modify new Gmail interface to be more like classic Gmail
Quote:
Recently, Google started enforcing its new looks onto Gmail users, without the ability to switch back to old (classic) Gmail. Until a few days ago, you could go back to the older version. Not anymore. The problem is, the new interface is designed primarily for mobile use. It is aesthetically pleasing but ergonomically inferior.

That only applies to Firefox and Chrome - nothing for IE.

Guess I'll just have to put up with it.

You've said in the past that you've got Firefox installed as a second string, so you could do it on there and just use Firefox for Gmail!
