Faster Gmail For Slow Connection Users
If you haven’t noticed, Gmail has rolled out new improvements today, to their Loading interface while signing in for Gmail. It now has a new loading screen with a loading bar that shows the progress of how much Gmail has been loaded and an option to load your Inbox in basic HTML.
Dial-up users or slow connection users can click the link Load Basic HTML while Gmail loads and it will open much faster than before. You won’t the usual Ajax-powered Gmail, but still, you can at least check your mails if you are in a hurry.
Gmail’s loading times have also been reduced to a great extent. Previously, Gmail required 24 requests to load the Inbox, but now it has been reduced to only 4 requests. [Via BlogsDNA]
Here’s what Gmail team has to say:
WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll keep working to make Gmail faster Ã¢â‚¬â€ thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a lot weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re doing right now Ã¢â‚¬â€ and weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll give periodic updates as we get improvements out. (And hopefully youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll notice some of them too.)
You can also reduce the loading time by appending the nocheckbrowser parameter to the URL [via Digital Inspiration]. This will force Gmail to skip the browser check. You can use the following URL for this purpose:
