I don't use chat or hangouts, so I guess trying to shove that down my throat with the new design isn't helpful. I like really, really don't use hangouts. Surely I'm not alone, right? I know it's a cool feature that Google has, but I feel downright resentful at times that it's like I'm supposed to be using them or something. I hate the chat box as much as I hate it on freaking Facebook. And all that white space. If it's for future features, roll them out now so I don't feel like have my screen real estate is wasted. Sigh.
