Gmail Makes Two Interesting Changes [And Nobody Noticed it]

Gmail made two interesting (minor) changes in the user experience and seems no one has noticed it yet.

If you are a usability expert, tell us when do you use a button and when do use a link? Well, Gmail has links for following call to actions

  • Refresh
  • Compose

But now, Gmail is probably doing a bucket test and here is what I got to see (in two different accounts)


But none of these changes are together seen in the same account! So all you UX folks, share your insights on these changes.
