Is GMail phasing out basic HTML?

I've noticed over the past few weeks, with two different GMail accounts, that it loads the standard view by default, even though both accounts use the "set basic HTML view as default" option.

For each session, I now have to repeatedly refresh the page until I can choose the "Load basic HTML" option link at the bottom right of the screen quickly enough to get the page to load in basic HTML.

Has anyone else experienced this? I hate standard view.

I don't normally use the basic HTML view but I was easily able to open a new window and look at it. The Google support article on the subject doesn't make any mention of it going away: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/15049?hl=en

Thanks for the replies.

I just logged in with my dial-up machine, and it went straight to basic HTML. So they might be pre-selecting which interface to use based on connection speed, despite any preferences set by the user.

Sounds like a bug to me.

Gmail is going straight to html with messages for me, but thatís a very fast connection.
