Google Blogoscoped is reporting that they see a link to Newer Version in Gmail. I checked my account and i don’t see anything as of now. They also published some screenshots of this new version.
This new version seems to be faster than the old one and it has a better contacts manager.
When you add a picture for a contact, you can pick a file straight from Google’s Picasa Web Albums. Skipping the hard disk might seem like no big deal but we may see more and more of this in the online OS/ online office.
