    I think it's a really annoying move.
    I mean, what the flip is the point of separating the inbox without letting the user do it first? What's the point. The point of the inbox is to have everything there and then you can sort your mail out accordingly afterwards.

    Idk.
    I dont like it.

    Not something I'll use, so I'll stick with my current inbox type. They've been taking their time rolling this out; it was mentioned back in May at the "Official Gmail Blog":

    It's actually doing a pretty decent job at sorting through my incoming mail.

    I thought I'd really find it annoying at first, but it's actually turning out to be quite convenient.

    Yeah, I don't hate it. It seemed awful in concept, but I turned it on anyway, and my inbox looked cleaner. "Primary," "Social," "Promotions," "Updates," and "Forums" seem like bad names - for instance, the "Forums" tab isn't really working - all my forum stuff went to "Updates," including UF. But if I read the tabs as "Real Inbox," "Social Media," "Grey Mail," "Automatically Generated But Relevant," and "Empty," it starts to make a lot of sense. It'd be even better if I could rename them that way, natch. = )
    I know I shouldn't use tildes for decoration, but they always make me feel at home~

    I think it is terrible, it seems to just label my emails more or less randomly. I would rather just check my inbox the old fashion way.

    Fortunately, it took less than 5 seconds to find out how to get rid of the new tabs.

    Did you guys get them automatically? I had to turn them on intentionally.

    I did, but I also didn't get the "Welcome to your new inbox!" message that my wife did, either, but she also had it rolled out later, if that makes a difference.

    I like how the default three tabs they set up are with Primary/Social/Promotions. Primary has filtered any actual conversations correctly, the Social tab has correctly filtering my Facebook, Twitter, various forums, and such. Promotions also picked up all the Living Socials and whatnot.

    Content with the default 3 tabs. Still waiting to be able to try it on my mobile, tho.

    The NSA tab is a bit disturbing.
