New Gmail Message Composition

Gmail users may find a prompt to try a new Compose feature.  The new Compose allows gmail users to write and send a message in a pop up window (see image), while still able to access messages, contacts and folders in the main window, which will still be in the background.

Many gmail users found it a nuisance that gmail opened a new screen in the same window/tab to compose a new message.  This required users who needed access to the main gmail window to open a new window/tab to access that information.
