About the new Material Design look

edited about four years ago in Checker Plus for Gmail

Why the new look?
Uninstall surveys confirmed the old look was ugly and I agree. The new look is easier to maintain and implement new functionality and is consistent throughout my extensions.

Can I keep the old look?
No, I will eventually phase it out because I cannot support a great extension by splitting my efforts with 2 designs.

Is the new look complete?
Never! I am pushing rapid fixes and listening to ALL feedback since it's initial release (4 weeks now) so please read the changelog before posting a bug because it could already be fixed. You might have to re-install the extension to force the latest updates. Please be constructive with your feedback to make the new look just as good as the old look was.

Why is it so big?
It's the new standard of Material Design that is coming to all Google products and I like it and I want to be consistent and innovative. Users can still choose a "Compact" look in the Menu > Display density
