Either someone is hacking the hell out of them and they dare not admit it, or Google hate the fact that some clever people have come along and made neat functional plugins for programs like Firefox so that us users can have our mail checked remotely and frequently. My Firefox extension wouldn’t log in – it’s happened before when G changed their program, so I go to the site.
The idiots are using a ‘Captcha’. What crap THAT is. It destroys functionality in plugins, and in terms of making their site accessible, they f*cked that too. Been in the same room as someone who has much reduced eyesight when they hit a captcha ? You may as well cover the screen with bricks when they need that site if there is such a creation in the way. If they have got a problem, then can they be no more imaginative than THAT ?
It’s now a few hours later.
Their own Gmail Notifier is still available for download, and it’s f*cked too. There is nothing on their help pages, no ‘news’ section or updates.
Thinking about it, this is because the geeks figured a way of turning their gmail accounts into mini server storage areas isn’t it ? But grief, what a STUPID way of doing it. Don’t accessibility laws cover the use of captcha ? They ARE discriminatory.
