Re: NVDA cursor automatically placed in conversations list in gMail standard view


I know you said eventually and that may be, eventually.  I think it is likely that Basic HTML will be around for a good while.

I find no relevant results in the first ten when I do Google searches such as GMail to end Basic HTML or Google to end Basic HTML.

Google says this in part about Basic HTML:
You're about to use a version of Gmail designed for slower connections and legacy browsers.

I suspect that in many parts of the world, slow connections are common.  Under such conditions, it is faster to use basic HTML.

gives a number of reasons people may want to use Basic HTML.  I suspect considerably more people use it than you may think.

As has been pointed out by Louise, Google has been putting "the writing on the wall" about the ultimate fate of Basic HTML view for quite a while now.

No one will ever have any legitimate claim to being surprised when the door is eventually actually shut for good.  They have put a ton of work into maximizing the accessibility of the standard view, and all its bells and whistles, because it will eventually be the only view.
