New Gmail UI & IE8 for Webmail Testing

[ 0 By

As always, there’s cool stuff happening here at Litmus. Recently, we made a few updates that reflect changes around the interwebs.

New Gmail UI

Gmail announced a significant overhaul to their User Interface late last year, and have recently upgraded all accounts to the new look. We’ve also followed suit, enabling the new look in all our Gmail screenshots.

At the Official Gmail Blog, there is a wealth of insight into Gmail’s new look, including some behind-the-scenes info designing and testing the new UI. It’s worth a read if you’re into responsive design, UX and development.

IE8 for All Webmail Tests

One of the best parts about using Litmus for email testing is that we include screenshots of how your email looks in both Internet Explorer and Firefox. That’s because there can be differences in rendering for webmail clients like Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo! and AOL, depending on the browser your subscribers are using to check their mail. We’ve recently updated all IE webmail tests to run on Internet Explorer 8.

We hope you enjoy these changes and find them useful!
