Re: Gmail has changed the way you sign in

So I've noticed, it's now making me sign in each time which is perhaps not a bad thing but what's also changed it my email notifications - I don't get them, and now have to log in to check for any new ones.

A temporary thing, a glitch, or is this how things are going to be. 

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.

Have you tried enabling Google's 'Material Design' in Chrome? I did this a few weeks ago and aside the slightly newer look to everything I'm still getting email notifications.

Follow the advice on this page: How to turn Chromes New Material Design ON & OFF

 

EDIT:

You won't be required to sign in on each visit if you change the above settings.

Re: Gmail has changed the way you sign in

I noticed when logging into Youtube yesterday to check comments, it had a new sign-in interface, so I guess it's a google-wide thing rather than just for gmail...

Re: Gmail has changed the way you sign in

I haven't noticed any changes here yet. I wonder if this is a 'area by area' type of thing. Roll eyes

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

You probably won't notice many changes to how Chrome looks, much of the changes seem to be 'under the hood' so to speak. 

Mainly I notice the settings area is what has changed the most with a new layout which seems to be much tidier than the previous look. Another thing that many Chrome users will know is that Chrome continues to run in the background even after closing your browser. This can eat up several hundred MB's of memory which has always annoyed me. There is an option to disable this from happening but it didn't work until I enabled the 'Material Design'.

Try it yourself if you like? Once you've enabled Material Design open up the Chrome settings and scroll down to the 'Advanced Options'. Set the first item to disabled so the button is greyed out. It's made quite a difference on my machine and recovered valuable memory which was previously being wasted.
