Gmelius Makes Gmail’s User Interface Awesome And Ad-Free

Gmail is Google’s golden child, but it isn’t perfect. It’s full of numerous user interface elements you don’t necessarily want or need, and there’s no way to turn them off. Gmelius offers you a way out of ads, the people bar and more while also making Gmail easier to navigate. It’s a great extension, it’s free, and it can dramatically improve your experience in less than a minute.

Watch the video below for a demo of some of the awesome things Gmelius can do.

Gmelius offers plenty of awesome tweaks to Gmail. Although ad removal is one of the best, there are a few excellent options that are easier to overlook. My two favourites include the option to hide and show the Google bar by pressing the = key, leaving a lot more room for messages, and clicking the black bar up top to automatically scroll to the top of any message or list.

Those three things account for only a very small portion of what Gmelius can change. You can remove several interface elements you may not want, like the people bar, chat, the footer, scroll bars and more. You can also add labels and change colours to customise the interface so it looks the way you want it. All of Gmelius’ tweaks help you clean up Gmail and either fix user interface problems or improve upon the status quo. It’s free to use, though donations are requested. Download it and start making Gmail a whole lot better.
