Today my GMail account was upgraded to the new interface. The contacts management interface has been improved, but that’s not what I’m excited about.

On a whim, I decided to review the keyboard shortcuts found at Guess what? Google has added # as a keyboard shortcut for “delete”. YAY! They’ve also added a bunch of other keyboard shortcuts I haven’t seen before: mark as (un)read, archive and previous/next, and undo.

As a die-hard keyboarder, the lack of a “delete” shortcut has been most annoying. I’ve been waiting for this ever since GMail launched.

Thanks, Google.
