Google just launched a revamped interface for Gmail with new contacts manager,which is 100 times better than the earlier one.The new contact manager is fast and easier to use.The new Contacts section of Gmail has a more prominent link ,which can be  accessible from a shifted upper left-hand menu, and there’s an updated “Compose mail” button .

Earlier managing contacts was definitely a pain and contacts interface  was mediocre.The new contacts manager now supports Keyboard shortcuts, sorting by name, custom labels for contact fields, ability to undo changes you made and automatic saving just like Gmail compose among other things.

  • Keyboard shortcuts (go to Contacts and hit "?" for the full list)
  • Sort by last name (look under "More actions")
  • Custom labels for phone numbers and other fields
  • The ability to undo changes you've just made
  • Automatic saving
  • Structured name fields, so you can adjust titles, suffixes, and other name components
  • A bigger, more prominent notes field

    In the top left corner along with  the "Contacts and Tasks" ,a link for "Mail" that takes you back to your inbox. If you're not interested in Contacts or Tasks, you can hide these links by clicking near the right edge of "Mail." .Gmail Tasks  feature designed to help you keep track of the things you need to do. You can create lists of items, set due dates and notes, and even add Gmail messages directly to Tasks.

    New features include keyboard shortcuts that mirror Gmail’s keyboard shortcuts, a sort by last name filter, faster editing options and  auto saving .Overall these changes are pretty good and make Gmail the best free email service out there.
