Override the mystery meat navigation in the new Gmail UI. Adds text labels back in alongside the Gmail icons.

Gmail now has an option to switch the standalone icons to text (Hurrah!), but this userstyle is still useful if you want both - keep the icons enabled on Gmail, and this userstyle will add the labels alongside the icons.

More info

First userstyle submitted (through frustration with the mystery meat), so it's quick and dirty. Not yet tested in all browsers, just Win Chrome and FF8 (as of 09/12/11). Only tested on desktop, no tablets or mobile devices.

If it works fine in you os/browser of choice let me know, or you want to send me any amends, you should be able to work out my email address :)

UPDATE: I just noticed the pledgie option, so if you find this userstyle useful, why not consider donating as little as $1 to a children's hospice, just hit the pledgie button below.
