  • Opinion: Chrome/Firefox Extension Gmelius Makes Gmail More Readable

    With numerous buttons and options you may never use, Gmail's rich interface can get in the way of actually reading email. To be fair, Google packs a lot of functionality into the interface, but no interface is perfect for 100% of its users.
