Gmail Accessibility

10 Apr 2004

Now I find Google to be a very interesting company. A lot of people claim that Google are "the good guys" and I certainly don't believe they are actively twattish. But it would be nice to see them pioneer the way in some area - CSS support, accessibility, some cause that isn't just spawned from their own interest.

Anyway. Mark Pilgrim talks about Gmail's accessibility - apparently it sucks. Such a move makes it seem like they're more interested in market share than making genuinely brilliant services. A small touch like accessibility is important to some people, and would lift Gmail to another level.
