Tasks has until now played a rather small role in Gmail, iGoogle and Google Calendar, today that changes, although perhaps not as dramtically as we’d like.

Rather than giving Tasks its own URL at google.com/tasks, Google has instead introduced a full-screen version of the current Tasks iGoogle gadget. Meaning you’ll need to visit iGoogle every time you want to view Tasks in full screen. Silly.

Visiting gmail.com/tasks on your mobile however will take you to the appropriate version of Google Tasks.
