(UPDATE) Professional Gmail Look


Hey, have you seen this?

It’s the new look of Gmail called “Redesigned”, want to know more?

Follow up:

Well, it is not really an official “new” design of Google’s Gmail but rather it is a Redesign possible only via Firefox’s Addon system. So come, let’s load Gmail Redesigned and take a peek inside.

This design looks professional to me compared to the too simple look of the current Gmail Design.

So how do you get it? Simple.

  1. Install Stylish Firefox Addon click here to download
  2. Go to: https://www.naverniouk.com/design/gmail/gmail.css
  3. Right-click the Stylish icon in the bottom right hand corner of the Firefox window and choose “Add File Style to Stylish”
  4. Put in the Description field: Gmail Redesigned (by Globex Designs)
  5. Click Save

Now you get this:

And this:

Awesome? Yeah!
