Gmail Skins

May I have your attention please?! This tip is for all you Firefox and Gmail users out there. If you use the Firefox Web browser and the Gmail e-mail program in conjunction with each other, you’re going to love what I have for you today! Yep, it’s yet another Firefox add on you can take advantage of to get the most out of your Gmail account. So, what is it? Well, this one is called Gmail Skins and with it, you can easily change the way your Gmail looks. Interested? I thought you might be. Keep reading for all the important details!

First of all, if you’re not sure what a skin is, it’s pretty much like the wallpaper you use on your computer desktop. There are several wallpaper designs you can choose from and Gmail Skins gives you the same type of options to use for your Gmail account. With Gmail Skins, you can change the layout and colors of your Inbox, you can insert your own images, you can use different emoticons in your e-mails, you can hide various page elements if you don’t want to see them and you can change the navigation you use to be horizontal. Awesome!

And that’s just the beginning! Along with all of that, if you have a Google homepage, you can integrate that right alongside your Inbox. If you do that, you’ll then be able to see all of your favorite Web sites (weather, news headlines, RSS feeds, etc.) right from your Gmail window. With Gmail Skins, there’s even a feature where you can add zebra stripes to your mailbox. How cool is that?! There’s a new attachment feature and so on and so on. As you can see, there are so many things you can do with Gmail Skins. It’s truly amazing! So, if you want to install it for yourself, just click here. Click on the big green Install Now button and you’ll be all set. Enjoy!
