Gmail incorporates Dvorak!

This morning when I logged into Gmail I was pleased to see a new feature in the top right of the window.  A keyboard icon, that when selected gave two options: English Keyboard and English Dvorak Keyboard!

There are a lot of other options available under the "Input Tools Settings" menu, but it's great that the Gmail team started this feature off by listing Dvorak.  When I think of the number of people using Gmail, it's exciting to think that some of them might look at this feature, wonder what it is, and eventually make the switch!

It's also great because it works within the browser, which means I will now be able to type all my emails in Dvorak, no matter what computer I am on, without having to mess with the computer settings.  Huzzah!

As with most Gmail features, it will probably roll out slowly, so if you don't see this feature in your account, keep logging in and eventually it should turn up in the next few days/weeks.
