Gmail’s interface has numerous options and settings, some of which you may seldom require. And although Gmail is probably very easy to navigate and use in its default state, these extra functionalities can sometimes get in your way. Gmelius is a dead simple Chrome extension that lets you customize Gmail to your heart’s content by hiding certain UI elements, like ads, or the footer, which hardly contributes to overall usage. It also lets you make the header auto-expandable and customize the appearance and behavior of inbox elements. Details after the jump.

It should be noted that the Gmelius extension isn’t new. It’s been around for quite sometime now, but I found it pretty useful, and worth sharing with those (like me) who may never have heard of it before.

After installation, Gmelius launches a configuration interface, which basically carries a long list of interface elements that you can check or uncheck according to your preference. Changes don’t come into effect until you hit the Save button. If you already have your Gmail inbox opened in another tab, it will reload automatically to apply the new settings.

The setting screen is divided into different sections, and the extension even contains some Premium features that, although limited in amount and free at the moment, will be accompanied by some paid ones in future.

So which UI elements can you hide you might ask? Well, with one click, you may hide Gmail’s top bar, and toggle it back by hitting Ctrl + Q (or another hotkey of your choice) when you’re in Gmail. Likewise, you can move labels from one side to another. Another tweak adds icons to email threads.

Gmelius also lets you remove ads from Gmail. And yet there’s another option that lets you disable the Chat functionality. In any case, Gmelius simply offers more than Gmail ever has. In case you want to revert all modifications to default Gmail settings, simply uncheck all options and hit Save. Here’s a quick look at the modified version of Gmail, with no Google logo and other removed items.
