Minimalist GMail – cool Bauhaus freeware strips your Google mailbox down to the bare minimum


The free Minimalist Gmail addon for Firefox strips out all the unnecessary clutter in the Gmail interface and leaves you with beautiful symmetry and no cruft. It’s totally configurable, you select what stays and what goes, and it doesn’t seem to have any impact on the workings of the inbox at all. I’ve got it set on a majorly bare bones version with just the search bar showing and it works great. Definitely a keeper!

  Choose what you want, get rid of the rest. * Change your mind any time you want. * Simplify Rows takes the heart of the clutter, hiding unnecessary icons while keeping all the functionality. * Remove chat, but still respond to incoming requests. * Remove ads, if you must. * Hide the header, but get it back in a jiffy. We add an itty-bitty toggle arrow for quick access to the search and settings.
