Gmail Skins: Change Gmail Appearance

Gmail Skins is a Firefox extension that lets you customize Gmail interface.


* Change the colour scheme of your inbox
* Insert smileys/emoticons and images in to your emails
* Make the navigation (Inbox, Starred, Sent Mail) horizontal
* Zebra stripes on the inbox (alternating colors for rows)
* Change the attachment paperclip to an icon indicating the file type of attachment
* Hide invite panel, page footer
* Hide your email address at the top - for privacy issues

The skins don't look very pretty, but they disrupt a little the monotonous Gmail look.

Skinning Gmail with user-defined CSS page


  1. I see in the column of the title of the massege in the inbox, appear most or all text of the massege, which will dusturb privacy to some extent, so I suggest to put in this column only massege subject.
    or let me know how to do it?

  2. I agree. Would rather it didnt do that.

  3. i think gmail should really offer some cool skins like myspace

  4. i think gmail itself luks cool,
    if any modifications needed it shold be lyke windows live or myspace:)

  5. @moawia:
    you can change that through gmail settings

  6. We bargain outstanding level of appropriate resolutions and convey modest and agent arrangements inside fast time. Our Gmail client administration can be quest for when prompt resolutions are required and our divergent squads can be called for different matter circumstances like telephonic sponsorship need or on location support.
