    This is driving me crazy. I wish there was a way to disable it.

    I second the claim that insanity awaits us! I have just added a similar comment to the thread on this related article – http://gizmodo.com/5963768/the-best-secret-gmail-feature-is-hiding-in-plain-sight. They should make this ‘feature’ optional. I was looking for a way to disable it too. I actually thought I’d enabled a Labs feature by mistake, as despite using gmail from 2006, I only started to notice it last week.

    Ugh, this is driving me nuts. And the Google Labs feature is nowhere to be found.

    Add me to the list of people annoyed and waiting for a way to disable it.

    please keep informed if you find any solution. this feature is a disaster :(

  6. Dan says:

    I’m terrible annoyed by this feature.

    Unfortunately, I think it’s here to stay. I remember exactly that it was an optional lab feature, like the alert regarding forgetting to attach files, and both became a standard staple of Gmail. Very, very annoying!…

    Is it possible to build a Chrome extension that overrides this?

  8. Tujae says:

    This is indeed extremely annoying.

    This change makes me loose confidence about the reliability of gmail.com and makes me think that I should find an independent email software like mozilla thunderbird or something else, still don’t know which… :(

    I’m a daily user of gmail.com since its opening in 2004. Time has come to move on and take my liberty back.

    FYI – please join the conversation on Google’s help forums. We are trying to get the Gmail team to notice our complaints on this issue.
