The new Gmail loading progress bar!

One of the first things I do every morning is check my Gmail and today, I noticed something different–the Gmail loading progress bar. This is something I have never seen before and I quickly took a screenshot. Here it is:

Googled this but could not find anything related. Btw, I love the link, ‘Load basic HTML’ at the bottom right of the screen–it helps you quickly switch to HTML version when loading takes too long on slow connections.

The folks at Google are always innovating to provide a better user experience. Thank you Google.

Update: Strangely, this new loading progress bar is displayed only in Firefox, it does not appear in IE. IE still shows the text ‘Loading…’.
