No, your eyes are not deceiving you, there is actually a "delete" button now available on Gmail. I know that it is still in beta, but it's a FREAKIN DELETE BUTTON! I think that Gmail should get an entry in the Guinness Worlds Records book as the very last email engine that didn't have a standard delete button roll out with the package on day one. Now that all the tough thinking of weather or not to put in a delete button is finally over all of the rocket scientists can now take a break. GOOD WORK GOOGLE! Kudos!
And on another note, I can finally delete my spam just as fast as I can report it as spam. Thank God!
