Firefox extension - Gmail Skins for a better Gmail experience

Want to super charge your Gmail inbox? Then use Gmail Skins. Gmail Skins is a Firefox extension that skins Gmail and also adds a lot of extra features to Gmail.

What Gmail Skins does?

• Change the colour of your inbox. All sorts of colours available.
• View weather, Google calendar and news headlines along side your emails - Any Google IG module can be added.

Gmail Skins

• Insert images from your Picasa web album in to your emails - Google lets you send emails from Picasa, but not send photos from Gmail.

Gmail Skins

• Insert smileys, images, tables and html in to your emails

Gmail Skins

• Change the attachment paperclip to an icon indicating the type of attachment - The attachment icon reflects the filetype of the attached file. For example a PDF attachment will show the PDF icons, a Word document will show the Word icon and so on.

Gmail Skins

• Complete integration with Gmail - Settings are changed from the Gmail settings page and they are stored on your account in a special Gmail label meaning your settings are persistent from computer to computer.

Gmail Skins

• Make the navigation (Inbox, Starred, Sent Mail, etc) horizontal
• Fix the navigation in place so that you don't have to scroll to the top of the page to see it
• Zebra stripes on mailbox - pretty!
• Hide various page elements (invite panel, page footer, your email address from the top right of inbox - may be useful for public computers)
