Former Gmail designer builds Chrome extension
Despite Google's attempts to improve Gmail, it remains hectic and cluttered. But now, Michael Leggett, one of Gmail's former lead designers, has released ‘Simplify’, a free Chrome extension to streamline your inbox. ‘Simplify’ moves Gmail's sidebar icons to discrete drop-down and pull-up menus. It also relocates the search feature to a less prominent location and shifts main functions, like delete, to the top bar.
