With the style applied



Post your compatibility issues in the discussion forum. If it is an issue with another style, be sure to include a link to that style. I will then provide you with a custom fix for your script.

More info
This script DOES NOT drastically nor dramatically change Gmail's appearance and or layout, but maintains its integrity by using the range of colors that fall within its default set, while allowing the user to adjust, fine-tune, and COSMETICALLY tweak Gmail to suit their needs.

No sponsored links
Bolder text
Max window use w/ no horizontal overflow
Less links, more buttons
Less clutter = easier to read
Hover highlights
No excess padding
Fully fits to browsers w/ 1024x768 resolution or better

DISCLAIMER: Be aware that at ANYTIME, the script may not work like it has previously because of Google's code and its constant update.


I don't mind if copy any part of my style. ALL I ASK is that you give me credit--e.g. just type the following into your style's description: "This style was inspired by style [1][6][3][9][9] by user [1][7][0][3][1]" (without the quotes and without the [brackets] that surround the numbers)--when you publish the style you made with my code.
