Gmail redesigned!

Really cool extension. They have only one style so far. But, even that one looks coool!! B) There has been many other extensions in the past that allowed you to apply skins to Gmail and add other cool stuff to Gmail. But, this extension is the only one where I really found the designs like-able and complete. šŸ™‚ What’s more? This extension also works its magic in GCalendar!!!

Google Redesigned is a Mozilla Firefox extension designed by Globex Designs that aims to fully redesign the look and feel of popular Google services. This is achieved with Cascading StyleSheet (CSS) files which are loaded on the client’s browser. The extension simplifies the use of these styles by providing auto-updates, easy management and notifications of changes. You can also download and use the styles individually by going to their respective pages.

Google Redesigned originally started as a single CSS file which tried to redesign Google‘s Gmail service. It has since grown to incorporate other various Google services and pages. Previously users of these styles would have to rely on other extensions such as Stylish, Greasemonkey or Web Developer to load these styles onto their browser which caused problems with updates, bug submission and version tracking. The Google Redesigned extension aims to solve all those problems by offering the popular Globex Designs styles in a single, self-updating extension.

Google Redesigned is built for Mozilla based browsers (Firefox, Flock, IceWeasel, and such). Users using other browsers will not be to install the extension. Firefox 3 and Flock 2 are highly recommended as certain styles will not work correctly on older versions of the Gecko engine. As well the Firefox 3 engine provides much faster performance for handling these styles.

This is an open source project, which means we welcome all suggestions, comments and bug reports. You can submit your feedback at the Google Redesigned Forums. The Extension and all the Google Redesigns styles are licensed under the GPL license.

    Nice find dude. I was getting so bored with the old Gmail design, and this is awesome. Functionality is the same, but the look is totally different. Great exhibition for CSS.
