+1 feature Gmail is missing: scroll down to auto load more

gmail auto load new conversations mockup

There’s one thing Gmail is missing at the moment, a killer feature that will transform the way people use Gmail and interact with conversations in their inbox. I want Gmail to automatically load new conversations and emails when reaching the bottom of the page, instead of clicking on the previous and next buttons. It’s a simple feature saving time, clicks and make the whole experience more fluid. The same way Twitter loads new tweets and Facebook loads new posts on the wall.

Why is such a feature missing? I can only assume it’s not a Google thing to do or engineers are so hooked to previous and next buttons they don’t bother with anything else.

I’d love to see this feature in Gmail Labs as a new experiment. Don’t you?

    I couldn’t agree more.

    But I’ll go one step further and suggest to render pagination totally obsolete. There are a lot of pages that could use infinite scrolling such as Flickr. Even WordPress could have this as its default behavior.
