I think the new look site is still being "ironed out". I don't use Google Laptopdunce - I don't use Chrome or G Mail so can't comment. I wouldn't describe the site as difficult to navigate but a little different to what we have been used to. I personally like the changes that have been made but I suppose they can't be to everyone's liking. Give it a few days and you will be navigating with your eyes shut.
