Gmail threading gets kill switch from Google

In what could probably be one of the longest standing feature request for Gmail, Google outlined plans for Gmail users to disable Conversation View in order to view their messages in chronological order. Ever since Gmail took off, related messages were lumped into a single conversation or thread, and there never was a way to order these emails chronologically in the manner of Microsoft Outlook or competing online e-mail services. It is a love-it-or-hate-it affair it seems, but it is nice to see the people over at Google listening to their users’ experiences and catering for their needs. The ability to disable Conversation View will be rolled out over the next few days, so be patient if you haven’t seen anything different in your Gmail just yet.
