Great site, except for the horrible scroll hijacking! I'm disappointed in you, Google.
I was a little surprised that the only way to request an invite is to send an email by copying the email address, then going to your email client and manually typing out a request and sending. What year is this again?
I was able to do it by clicking on the email address. Maybe that's because my Chrome has the default email client set to gmail, though.
Yes, I was a bit surprised by that as well. Had to go back and make sure I did it right.
It's to prevent everyone on earth from requesting an invite. Only the people who really want one will request it. You have to do a small amount of work to get in…
Just like filling out the form to win a free car.
I suspect it has to do with Google wanting to harvest info about the person's current email client from the email's header.
You know, this makes a lot of sense. And it seems like data Google would be interested in having for this.
i actually really like the scrolljacking here. very well executed with horizontal and vertical media queries.
I agree, I can't recall the last time I found a scrolljacking site that actually worked well. If any...
Shhh! It's popular to hate scrolljacking.
I like it to a certain extent but find it frustrating when you get stuck on a feature that has no value for you.
Whoa! View source. You can actually read it. Bravo!
If the scroll hijacking doesn't seem bad, you must not be using a MacBook trackpad with Chrome because over here it's almost unusable.
Works fine on Mac mice too. The only time it seems odd to me is the small percentage of people who have really tricked out custom mice and custom panels to control scrolling. Not normal setup but designers and some crazy power users gamers have them.
Definitely the case. Not a fan in general of this approach though.
I really like this product site. The scroll highjacking isn't that bad.
So inoffensive comments are being deleted now? Gotcha.
ooh, do elaborate!
What happened? Please, please, tell us.
Is this a little like mailbox by dropbox? but more predictive?
more like sparrow by google.
hadn't checked that out yet.. I'll give it a look
Right, that's where they got this from. Already forgot about that acquisition.
A lot like mailbox + google now. Mailbox won't be able to compete as well with intelligence about what a message is I think.
I never understood why in the world I had to move obvious email receipts to a receipts folder myself for the last 10 years. Took someone long enough…
