Google Phases Out HTML View in Gmail, Paving the Way for the ‘Standard View’
Transition Alert: Gmail's Classic HTML View Set to Retire
Google is ushering in changes to Gmail, urging its users to make the switch to the ‘Standard View’ as it gears up to retire the ‘Basic HTML View’ in just three months. The ‘Basic HTML View’ was initially designed to accommodate slower connections and legacy browsers. Still, with the majority of users now opting for the ‘Standard View,’ the classic HTML version’s days are numbered.
The Transition Process
As Google takes this step, it means that users who rely on older browser versions, operating systems, or face bandwidth limitations will have to adapt to the more intensive ‘Standard View.’ While this might be an inconvenience for some, Google is pushing forward with its plans.
