Traditional: There is more than one way of reading your messages. The Traditional view is a collapsible three-pane view. See all your accounts and folders in the left pane, all your messages in the center pane, and preview of a selected message on the right. Or just expand your message for a full screen read.
Grid-like: Bored of traditional inbox? Suffering from message overload? Need a way to prioritize? Grid view takes care of all that for you. Depending on whom you interact with the most and importance and message type, your messages will show up in different sizes and colors--giving it a magazine-like feel.

- Highlight any word in a message and intelligent and contextual options will show up. Create a calendar entry easily by highlighting a friend's request.
The Grid10 introduces the world's first chromeless browser, giving you a full-screen experience without the fuss of a browser interface wrapped around the screen. Browser controls show up when you want them and disappear when you want to concentrate just on the web page--you decide.
Tabs are on the left and other controls on the right. Bring controls on screen with a diagonal gesture from the bottom left or right of the screen. And when you bring the tabs onto the screen they show up at the bottom right of the screen. Thumb or cycle through them to switch between tabs. Close tabs as you desire. Tabbed browsing has never been so enjoyable before.
