Useful Greasemonkey plug-ins for GMail

This is a nice list of plug-ins for Greasemonkey that I’m using to make GMail more usable and productive. I hope one day GMail will integrate these.

Here’s the list:

  • Greasemonkey install

    Next, you will have to restart Firefox so the Greasemonkey plug-in takes effect.

  • Conversation Preview

    When this plug-in is enabled, right-clicking on any thread will display a bubble with a preview of the thread.

  • Fixed Font

    When this plug-in is enabled, you will see a link at the right-side of the screen where you can toggle the font for the currently displayed message.

  • Label Colors

    When this plug-in is enabled, GMail labels whose name as a " #color" suffix will get colored. For example, a label named "Importante #red" or "Importante #FF0000" will be drawn within a red bubble in GMail.

  • Macros

    When this plug-in is enabled, you can create macros and bind keyboard combinations to them.

  • Reader integration

    When this plug-in is enabled, you will see a Feeds link on the left-hand side of the screen, together with other links like Inbox, Drafts, Spam and Sent.

  • Saved Searches

    When this plug-in is enabled, you can customize and store searches that are shown within a yellow frame on the left-hand side of the screen.

  2. I do like the way you have framed this specific concern plus it really does give me a lot of fodder for consideration. However, from what precisely I have witnessed, I basically trust as the commentary stack on that folks remain on point and not start on a tirade regarding the news of the day. Anyway, thank you for this excellent point and whilst I do not agree with the idea in totality, I respect your perspective.

  3. Such superb description! No idea how you managed to write this’d take me days. Well worth it though, I’d assume. Have you considered selling ads on your blog?

  4. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
