eh. I’ve had this thought a few times now so I thought I’d scrawl it down quickly.
I love that Gmail now has a delete button (rather than being obscurely positioned as an option in a dropdown!)
but in the time that i’ve been using Gmail I’ve become so accustomed to using that dropdown, that I still go there first to delete, even though now, I would argue, the delete button is in the correct (intuitive?!) position.
Its amazing how quickly habits form, how easily I’ve ‘learned’ this bizarre placement, how long its taken me to ‘unlearn’ this behaviour (ok, its been about a week or so… still, I’m using it frequently, every day).
there’s something in that for all of us.
