Google’s Gmail Undo 14 Sep 2005

Kudos to Google for being one of the few companies offering at least some level of undo in their web-based apps.
Undo is all the more important in Ajax-heavy apps since things happen so fast. Take a checkbox for example: The old way was you’d click the box and then press a button. That gives you more time to change your mind. With Ajax you click the box and bam, the action is performed. If the change is small it’s easy to reverse it, but it’s nice of Gmail to allow you undo things like deletes (or “discards”). Well done.
