SUPERCHARGE GMAIL WITH SIMPLIFY Brought to you by the co-founder and design lead for Google Inbox, Simplify Gmail is a browser extension for desktop Gmail that boosts productivity, strengthens privacy, and reduces️ stress by:

✔️ Making hundreds of improvements (small and large) to streamline, simplify, and enhance Gmail’s design and functionality. No part of Gmail is left untouched. Messages are easier to scan, read, and compose. Once you install, compare Gmail before and after using Alt+S (⌥S on Mac). ✔️ Blocking over 250 email spy trackers (more than any other tracker blocker extension). ✔️ Adding intuitive keyboard shortcuts. Navigate faster with your arrow keys, Enter (to open, then to reply), and Escape (close a message, then to return to inbox). Use familiar shortcuts like Ctrl+A / ⌘A to select all or Ctrl+Z / ⌘Z to undo. Press "?" in Gmail to see all shortcuts. ✔️ Adding a full dark mode with options to invert compose and all or only text messages. ✔️ Letting you focus by turning off your inbox and optionally disable notifications. This isn't for everyone, but some appreciate being able to press pause and focus on their starred messages, drafts, etc without being distracted by new mail. Video demo ✔️ Adding back the missing categories. Google Inbox had three other categories (Finances, Purchases, and Travel) that still work but Gmail doesn't link to. Simplify adds links to these in the nav with the other Categories. ✔️ Providing over 40 options with great defaults so you can fine tune Simplify just the way you like. Options include changing the interface font, hiding unread counts, making the interface even more minimal, and more. ✔️ And more, with more on the way There are tons of other details and features with more on the way.
