Make Gmail simpler, more capable, and more respectful
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:
✔️ BETTER DESIGN: Hundreds of improvements (small and large) to streamline, simplify, and enhance Gmail’s design and functionality. Hide the features you don’t use, customize the ones you do including setting the list and message width and fonts.
✔️ BUNDLES: Group conversations with the same label or category into a single row in your inbox for easier bulk reading and processing.
✔️ SAVED SEARCHES: Add commonly used searches or bookmark any message to your nav for easy access. Simplify includes 24 useful searches by default like Travel, Purchases, Archived, Attachments, Notes to self, PDFs, Photos, and more.
✔️ PAUSE INBOX: Pause new mail or hide the inbox entirely for deep focus. Optionally disable notifications when the inbox is paused or hidden.
✔️ BLOCK TRACKERS: Simplify blocks over 250 email spy trackers (more than any other tracker blocker extension).
✔️ 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. Also includes advanced shortcuts like [ I ] to reply to an intro and move the sender to BCC.
✔️ DARK MODE: Auto-switch with OS with options to invert all of Gmail’s UI and some or all messages.
✔️ GROUP BY DATE: Group messages list by date with bulk actions to one-click archive or delete.
✔️ INBOX ZERO BACKGROUND: Choose a different background to get when you reach inbox zero.
✔️ AUTO-CC/BCC: Set addresses to add to every new message and/or reply

HAVE FEEDBACK OR QUESTIONS?
You can send feedback or report issues via https://simpl.fyi/support (I usually respond within one business day).
Note that there are over 100,000 unique combinations of Gmail’s options, features, and user states. Add in other 3rd party add-ons, different languages, browsers, screen sizes, and more and it grows to over a billion. Simplify strives to support them all, along with the more popular 3rd party extensions and add-ons.
