If you are making the switch to Gmail, the first thing that stands out is that although Gmail is very responsive, it is pretty unattractive web application to use. There are plenty of modifications you can make to your browser to make Gmail look better, but I thought I would focus on modifications that strictly work in all browsers. Here are a three modifications that I think improve upon the standard Gmail interface.
- Click the Gear icon and select: Comfortable
- Click the Gear icon and click Settings: Labs: Preview Pane switch to Enable.
- Click the Gear icon and click Themes: under Color Themes select High Contrast.
