Gmail users who require that everything be just so may be in luck; a few new personalization opportunities have been made available in the form of four new themes.  And in fact, one of the four themes caters to indecisive types, so members of the Gmail team really covered their bases.

All right, we admit it – these Gmail themes aren’t going to generate Google’s next billion dollars.  In all likelihood, they won’t even convince more than one or two souls (if that) to switch from Hotmail or Yahoo Mail.

Still, these are the first new themes in about ten months, so on we go.

Pictured on the left below is a screenshot of what Googlers Jake Knapp and Manu Cornet identified on the Official Gmail Blog as the "Orcas Island" theme.  Knapp promised "a new image each day of the week."

On the right, you can see what Cornet called "High Score."  It should seem familiar to anyone who spent more than a few minutes playing the original Nintendo.

The third theme is called "Turf."  It shows some green grass and not much more.  Finally, Cornet wrote that the "Random" theme "merely cycles through all the others."

Knapp and Cornet welcomed feedback if you’re inclined to give it, and they also indicated that still more themes might wander down the pipeline at some point.

    “Turf ” seem to be more beautiful than others.The added customize options are awesome. The theme library contains everything from a terminal window style to graffiti.

    How long will it be until Google allows branded/sponsored themes to be applied? That might be where it can atleast make a few extra million in revenue.
