Maximize Firefox space for Gmail

leave a comment »

Gmail in Firefox is my primary work and personal email client, so I try to make as much space available as possible for Gmail.

I use Hide Menubar add-on which hides the main menubar, then I hide all other extra toolbars and keeping only Address bar (which minimum you need anyways).

Then, recently I found Gmail Compactor Add-On which make further space available for Gmail and make it look little better than standard interface. Make sure you have Greasemonkey add-on installed before you try.

Switched back to Outlook from Gmail

leave a comment »

Today I switched back to MS Outlook from Gmail, I used to access all my office emails on a Gmail account but something drove me back to Outlook again, well here are my reasons…

1. Sending email in gmail is time consuming especially when you have a slow or unstable connection, In outlook you can compose email and just click on Send button (outlook don’t “complain” even if you are offline, it will send email in background process).

2. With Gmail you can’t access your email offline.

3. Can’t take backup of your emails on Gmail (yes, I need to as per our policy rule).

4. It’s simply easier to work with keyboard on Outlook than Gmail.

5. I just love the Outlook 2007 interface, it rocks.

Of course noone beats Gmail in email search and spam protection, I will continue to use it for my personal emails.
